Child Molester Sentenced to 25 Years in Prison

Timothy Ramon, of San Antonio, Florida, has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for Lewd or Lascivious Molestation. He was also sentenced to lifetime sex offender probation and designated a sexual predator for life.

Assistant State Attorney Erin Hughes, of the State Attorney’s Office Special Victim’s Unit, prosecuted the case.

The crime happened between late 2020 and early 2021, at a residence in Lee County. The defendant molested the child victim, while staying at the home.

In December 2021, the victim told a parent about the crime and law enforcement was immediately contacted. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office Special Victim’s Unit started an investigation.

Evidence was found in messages sent by the defendant on the social media platform, Snapchat, involving some admission to touching the child.

A warrant was issued for Ramon’s arrest and he was located in Pinellas County in July 2022 and extradited to Lee County for prosecution.
