Osceola County * On March 15 at approximately 4:00 p.m., Osceola County Sheriff’s deputies added more charges for Bradley Robert Knight (DOB 2/28/70) who is currently being held in the Osceola County. The charges include 6 counts of Lewd & Lascivious Battery (F.S.S. 800.04-4a) and 3 counts of Possession of Child Pornography (F.S.S. 827.071-5) relating to evidence found during a search warrant issued in October of 2006.   The information relating to the child pornography were confirmed by a electronic crimes agent earlier this week.  The battery charges stem from further interviews with current victims.

Background Information:

Based on information she told detectives, Knight was arrested and taken to the Osceola County jail.
October 4, 2006: Knight was re-arrested on charges from another victim who alleges sexual abuse.  The charges include 4 counts of Lewd & Lascivious Molestation (F.S.S. 800.04(5)(a), 2 counts of Lewd & Lascivious Exhibition (F.S.S. 800.04-7a) and 2 counts of Child Abuse (F.S.S. 827.03-b) based on new information obtained from a victim who is under the age of 12.
