ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. – Weston J. Willis, 30, was arrested yesterday and charged with lewd and lascivious behavior after blood drive employees called law enforcement about his relationship with a 15-year-old girl.
Willis and the 15-year-old were at Bass Pro Shop yesterday and decided to give blood at a blood donor bus that was parked at the store. After they filled out paperwork, the employees told the 15-year-old that she wasn’t old enough to donate blood, but Willis continued with the blood donation. Employees later told an Alachua County Sheriff’s Deputy that the girl was caressing Willis and that they kissed on the lips.
An employee spoke to the girl, who said that Willis was her boyfriend and that they had been in a relationship for about a year. An employee flagged down a deputy, and Willis was detained.
The girl reportedly showed deputies her phone and allowed them to read her messages, which were reportedly consistent with two people in a relationship. Deputies learned that Willis and the girl live together in Marion County.
Willis has been charged with lewd and lascivious conduct, the alleged crime that occurred in Alachua County. He is being held on $100,000 bail.
