New Port Richey, FL (July 22, 2019) – A man identified as 30-year-old Robert Thomas Delks Jr. was charged on two counts of sexual battery after twice molesting a 14-year-old girl.
At the time of the incidents, which took place in 2017, Delks was 28 and the girl was 14. At the time of the first incident, authorities allege that Delks took the girl into a tree line behind a gas station and pulled her pants and underwear down while trying to have sex with her.
In a second incident, Delks tried to take the girl into a tree line again but she refused. He then put his hands down her pants and molested her.
On July 18, the girl called Delks in a controlled conversation being monitored by police to discuss the incidents. Delks claimed that he did not want to talk about the incidents in fears that he would get in trouble but admitted that he was sexually attracted to her and said that he did not deny that the incidents happened.
On July 19, Delks spoke with deputies and denied having relations with the teen. However, he later told deputies that he had sexual urges toward the girl even though he denied having sexual relations with her.
Delks has since been charged with sexual battery.
