Authorities in Hernando County Florida arrest a Louisiana man accused of having sex on multiple occasions with a 15-year-old while hiding in the teen’s closet for over a month.

On Sunday, deputies responded to a home in Spring Hill Florida after the teen’s parents found the man, later identified as 35-year-old Johnathan Lee Rossmoine, hiding in their child’s bedroom.

When deputies arrived they found Rossmoine still hiding in the victim’s closet.

The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that Rossmoine admitted he drove from Louisiana to Spring Hill on several occasions to have sex with the victim. Investigators say Rossmoine also admitted to having numerous sexual encounters in his van, which was parked outside the victim’s house.

The sheriff’s office says the victim admitted she met the teen through an online chatting app. The victim told deputies that Rossmoine, who the teen calls a ‘boyfriend’, lived off and on in the teen’s bedroom since August 19. Rossmoine would hide in the closet when the victim’s parents were home, only coming out when they left for work according to the sheriff’s office.

Johnathan Rossmoine is charged with four counts of Lewd and Lascivious Behavior with a Victim between the age of 12 and 16 and one count of using a computer to meet or lure child for sex.

Rossmoine is booked in the Hernando County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
