The Levy County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation
Division Detective Justin VanDuren responded to a report of a sexual battery.
The mother of the victim told Detective VanDuren her child disclosed that
Richard Uliano (12-6-78) from Bronson had sexually molested her. Beginning at
the end of the school year in 2018 and into the summer the victim reported
Uliano, who had custodial responsibilities for the child, on three separate occasions
forced her to watch and/or perform sexual acts on him.
Detective VanDuren located and arrested Uliano on March 29,
2019 after obtaining information from him that validated the victim’s
statements. Uliano was booked in to the Levy County Detention Facility and
charged with three offenses; sexual battery by a custodian, lewd and lascivious
molestation and lewd and lascivious exhibition. Uliano is being held in lieu of
a $300,000.00 bond.
