Duo Arrested for Sex Crimes Against Child

June 22, 2017

On June 21, 2017, Levy County
Sheriff’s Office Investigators arrested Jason Allen Fisher (12-1-81) and Ronald
Arthur Adams (9-4-58) for multiple sex crimes committed against a child victim in
Levy County, Florida.  The arrests are
the result of cooperative efforts between the Florida Department of Children
and Families (DCF), the University of Florida Child Protection Team (CPT) and
the Levy County Sheriff’s Office. 

Both subjects were charged with
three felony counts that included Sexual Battery and Lewd and Lascivious
Molestation of a child victim.  Fisher
and Adams are being held at the Levy County Detention Center.  Their individual bonds were set at five
million dollars each by Levy County Judge Tim Browning. 

The terrible evidence uncovered
in the case indicates the child victim was molested over a long period of
time.  The offenses occurred in the
Morriston area of the county.  Fisher and
Adams were acquaintances of the victim’s family.  One of the victim’s relatives reported the
abuse and the involved agencies immediately began building the case. 

LCSO lead Investigator Mike
McNeil expressed confidence that theses offenders will ultimately be convicted
due to the high quality of the evidence developed in this case.  As always, LCSO encourages citizens to report
anonymously suspected criminal activity to CrimeStoppers at 1-877-349-TIPS
(8477).  Suspected child abuse or neglect
cases can also be reported to DCF by calling 1-800-962-2873.
