    On January 24, 2018, deputies responded to a confidential residence in eastern Hillsborough County after learning of allegations of Lewd and Lascivious Molestation and Sexual Battery between the defendant, Robert Schultz, and an eleven-year-old male victim.  During the investigation, detectives learned Robert Schultz had inappropriate sexual contact with the victim on multiple occasions.

    Detectives made contact with Robert Schultz and conducted an interview.  During the interview, Robert Schultz admitted to performing oral sex on the victim on multiple occasions, masturbating the victim and coercing the victim to masturbate him.  Mr. Schultz was arrested for 3 counts of Capital Sexual Battery on a victim under the age of 12 and 6 counts of Lewd and Lascivious Molestation.  The victim is known to defendant and this incident was not a random act.  Schultz was arrested at his residence and booked into the Orient Road Jail with no bond.

    At this time, detectives are not aware of any other victims, however detectives are encouraging anyone who may have been a victim of Schultz to please contact the Sheriff's Office at 813-247-8200.
