Gordon Keith Roberts - Repeat Sex Offender

Conviction date: 7/24/2000
Offender's age at conviction: 36

An Old Town man, already designated as a sexual predator, is being held in Dixie County on a new sexual battery charge, officers reported Tuesday.

Gordon Keith Roberts, 44, was being held without bond at the Dixie County jail after he was accused of sexual battery earlier this month. A woman acquainted with Roberts came forward to investigators and alleged Roberts had assaulted her at his home multiple times.

Officers searched the home at 23953 Highway 19 in Old Town and found sexually explicit materials in the residence, according to the Dixie County Sheriff’s Office. Roberts was arrested on Oct. 8.

Roberts is accused of sexual battery and of violationing his probation for possessing pornographic or sexually explicit material.

The investigation is continuing into the case, said Capt. Chad Reed.

Additional information about the victim in the new case was not released to protect her identity.

Roberts is listed on the state’s sex offender Web site as a sexual predator, based on a 2000 conviction in Dixe County for sexual battery by an adult on a victim under age 12.
