Man Arrested After Allegedly Molesting Child

The Bay County Sheriff's Office has arrested a Bay County man May 30, 2008, on a sexual battery charge after the family of the one year old child reported the child had been molested.

On May 29, 2008, the Florida Department of Children & Families (DCF) received the report in reference to the possible molestation of the child. An investigation into the report led law enforcement to Benjamin Cox, DOB 01-15-88, a transient, as a potential suspect.

On May 30, 2008, Cox was brought to the Bay County Sheriff's Office, and interviewed. After speaking with Cox, investigators charged him with two counts of Sexual Battery on a Child Less Than 12 Years of Age, and one count of Lewd or Lascivious Molestation of a Child Less Than 12.

Cox is currently being held at the Bay County Jail.
