Sex Offender Repeats

Sarasota, Fla.-(970 WFLA)-Deputies have arrested a convicted sex offender for committing sexual battery on a child.

Seventy year-old Jerald Gene Williams was convicted back in 1989 of sexually assaulting a child from the time she was three until she was six years old.  Williams was sentenced to community control, but was not prohibited from contact with the victim.

The victim is now an adult and recently told deputies that Williams sexually assaulted her until she reached the age of 14.  Detectives monitored a recent conversation between Williams and the victim, where he admitted his guilt as the victim described the history of the assaults.

Williams confessed to the crimes when deputies arrested him.  Williams is being held in the Sarasota County Jail without bond.
