SPRING HILL, Florida – A 36-year-old Louisiana man was arrested after being hidden in a Florida teenager’s bedroom closet.
According to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office, Johnathan Lee Rossmoine was found by the teenager’s parents on Sunday, September 27.
MPs said when they got to the Spring Hill home, Rossmoine was still hiding in the closet.
According to MPs, Rossmoine said he would make multiple trips from Louisiana to Spring Hill to have sex with the teen. He added that during that current trip he had been in Hernando County for about five weeks and had multiple sex with the victim.
MPs said Rossmoine and the juvenile victim met on an online chat app about two years ago. When they first met online, the teen told Rossmoine that they were 18 years old, but then told him before they met in person that they were actually 15 years old. MPs said the teenager called Rossmoine her boyfriend.
According to the teen, Rossmoine had lived in the teen’s room since Aug. 19, hiding in the closet when her parents were home and only coming out when they were at work.
MPs said Rossmoine also told them he and the teen victim had sex on multiple occasions in his van parked near the teen’s house.
Rossmoine has been charged with four lewd and lascivious behaviors involving a victim aged between 12 and 16 and obscene communication. Its borrowing was set at $ 25,000.
The sheriff’s office said additional charges are a possibility pending further investigation.
