43-year-old Antonio Arementero Moreno of Tampa, Florida was arrested Wednesday and charged with Sexual Battery on a Child Older Than 12 and Lewd and Lascivious Molestation on a Child Older Than 12. He had a bond hearing earlier today and has been ordered held without bail. Moreno is currently lodged in the Hillsborough County Jail.
Moreno has apparently been sharing a bedroom with the boy at Moreno’s home although their relationship has not been made public by the Hillsborough County Sheriff.
The sexual battery took place around midnight and the boy told his father about the incident, who called police as soon as it became known to him.
Moreno, who is unemployed, was also arrested back in January by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office on a Domestic Battery charge. He was released on his own recognizance the next day. I don’t know if it’s been to court or not but will try and update this post later in the week when I have time.
