Man charged with sexual battery of 15-year-old boy

An Avon Park man was arrested Wednesday after deputies say he committed a sex act with a 15-year-old boy. 

Antonio Ramon Ricketts Douglas, 32, was charged with sexual battery and possession of a firearm, along with several drug charges, deputies reported.

Deputies say the victim told his dad on Feb. 28 and that Douglas had a gun and said he would die on that day, either by the victim’s father or by law enforcement.

Illegal prescription pills and marijuana were found during a search of Douglas’ home, deputies said.

Douglas remains in the Highlands County jail.
