Man Sexually Assaults 12-Year-Old For Years, Leaves Her Parting Gift

A 45-year-old Florida man who was found guilty of impregnating the 14-year-old “love of his life” is facing new charges for allegedly raping an 11-year-old. 


Police in Citrus County say an 11-year-old reported that Steven Ballow raped her when he visited her family in Crystal River, according to ABC Action News. A few days prior to these accusations, Ballow was arrested in Tennessee after authorities there said he impregnated his teenage neighbor.

Ballow reportedly told police that he was in love with the girl and had been having sex with her since she was 12. The teen told police that she tried to end the relationship, but Ballow threatened to commit suicide.

"[I] was hoping that this was an isolated incident and we would never hear anymore about him or from him," said a neighbor. Ballow’s neighbors reported seeing children coming and going from his home, but they thought he was babysitting his nieces and nephews.
