    • Sexual battery on a child under 12 (3 Counts)


    On May 11, 2013, the mother of a female under 12 years old reported that her child had been sexually battered. HCSO detectives initiated an investigation and determined during the past 6 weeks, Daniel Gosse performed various sexual acts on the child who is not a family member.

    Detectives have confirmed this attack was not a random act but in the interest of not identifying the victim, we will not elaborate further on the relationship between the victim and Gosse.

    Gosse was arrested at his home without incident and taken to the Hillsborough County Jail where he is being held without bond.

    The investigation continues.
