Sarasota, FL (July 18, 2019) – Behzad Izadi was allegedly arrested on charges of molesting four girls who were friends of his daughter, according to authorities.
The arrest report claims that he was arrested on charges of lewd and lascivious molestation. The investigation began when a 14-year-old girl from Sarasota went to a counselor and told them that she had been sexually battered at a sleepover when she was 13.
The sleepover took place at a rented condo on Siesta Beach and she claimed that Izadi was the only adult present. Izadi allegedly supplied the young girls with alcohol and drugs. The victim then told deputies that she fell asleep on the couch and woke up to find that Izadi was touching her sexually.
Through the investigation, deputies were able to find that the other three victims told similar stories.
It is possible that Izadi could now be facing 25 years in prison or more.
