James Touchton, 37, of Inverness, was arrested Monday and charged with capital sexual battery and lewd and lascivious molestation of a child under 12 years old.
Few details have been publicly disclosed about the case, but the Citrus County Sheriff's Office said investigators were tipped off on March 8 and continued investigating through March 11.
"...the victims disclosed multiple incidents of sexual abuse by Touchton," a spokesperson for the sheriff's office wrote in an email.
"A possible lifetime in prison sentence for James Touchton is nothing in comparison to the physical and emotional harm he has inflicted on his victims," Prendergast said. "He used his authority over these two juveniles to manipulate them into unspeakable acts.
A Florida corrections officer has been accused of sexually abusing two children.
