Pinellas Co., FL-- Pinellas deputies arrested a Texas man today, a little over one year after he sexually battered a then 13-year-old, mentally disabled girl.

According to reports, 40-year-old Christian Egan sexually battered the girl at least three times in his car outside of a Dunedin residencebetween August 30 and September 1 of 2011.

Detectives say the girl, who lives in Michigan and was just visiting Florida at the time, told her friends at school that Egan engaged her in oral sex during her visit.

One of the friends subsequently told a school counselor, who in turn contacted the local Police Department. They forwarded the case to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Crimes Against Children Unit.

Egan currently lives in Helotes, TX, but officials say Egan lived in Pinellas County at the time of the crime. They say Egan willingly came to the Sheriff's Administration Building for questioning, and admitted to everything.

Officials arrested him and charged him with three-counts of Sexual Battery on a Mentally Disabled Minor, but they say the investigation continues.
