INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — A 59-year-old man suspected of molesting an 8-year-old girl twice at a residence and inside a vehicle, was arrested last week.
The man – identified as David Scott Parker – told deputies “he knew every act he committed with (the girl) was wrong and that he felt guilty for his actions,” reports show. The incidents happened in July and November.
Deputies arrested Parker, 59, of Key West, on two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation. Parker was held Friday at the Indian River County Jail on $200,000 bond.
Indian River County deputies spoke with the girl Dec. 19. The girl said Parker touched her inappropriately multiple times at different locations.
On Dec. 20, Parker called law enforcement and agreed to come to the sheriff’s office for an interview. Parker spoke with deputies the next day, where he admitted to molesting the girl on two separate incidents in Indian River County.
Deputies arrested Parker and took him to the county jail. Parker has an arraignment at 8:45 a.m. Feb. 15, 2019, court records show.
