A day after making an arrest for a nearly 50 year old sexual assault case – authorities had to release the alleged culprit because it appears there were no laws in Florida for charging the rape of men or boys.
On Wednesday, March 12, detectives with the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office arrested Robert Dewitt Grose, 72, for committing Lewd and Lascivious Molestation and Lewd and Lascivious Battery on an 8 to 9-year-old male child some 48 years ago. Grose was about 25 years old at the time of the alleged assault.
