COPS: 20-Year-Old Ocala Man Traveled To Punta Gorda To Meet 14-Year-Old Teen for Sex; Met On Tik-Tok

After detectives found probable cause for Lewd and Lascivious Battery, 20-year-old Trevor D. Spradlin was transported to the Charlotte County Jail without incident.

PUNTA GORDA, FL – Early Wednesday morning, Charlotte County deputies arrested a 20-year-old Ocala man who traveled to Charlotte County to engage in a sexual relationship with a teen he met on the popular social media app, Tik-Tok.

Deputies responded to a Punta Gorda home where they identified 20-year-old Trevor D. Spradlin parked on the property in a Gold 2005 Nissan Maxima with the 14-year-old teen victim. The two were separated and interviewed.

During the interview, deputies were able to confirm that Spradlin had traveled to Punta Gorda on March 26, 2023 to meet the victim who he allegedly believed to be 18 years old. While Spradlin was at the victim’s home, he told the victim’s mother he was only 16 years old.

During that visit, a sexual relationship ensued. Yesterday, April 5, Spradlin was picked up in Ocala by the victim’s family and returned to Punta Gorda once again to visit the victim. After a short visit at the home, the two left and 911 was contacted.
