Apopka man charged with molestation


A 55-year-old Apopka man was arrested Saturday on charges of sexual battery and molestation according to an arrest warrant filed Saturday by the Apopka Police Department.

According to the warrant, the victim (a male over the age of 12, but under the age of 18) said Keith Francis De Somer lured him onto the back porch of his house, and touched him inappropriately several times and pulled his own pants down and made the victim touch him inappropriately.

The victim said he didn't fight back or tell de Somer to stop because he was in shock and emotionally distraught.
