Citrus County deputies say Randall Hauter, 19, molested an autistic girl and another young girl

CITRUS COUNTY, Fla - A Citrus County teenager is accused of molesting two juvenile girls over a three month period.  Deputies say one of the girls is autistic.

Randall Hauter Jr., 19, of 19 W. Lemon Street in Beverly Hills, is facing lewd and lascivious molestation charges.

Authorities say the molestation took place between September and December of last year.

According to deputies, the first victim was 9-years-old when she was groped by Hauter.  Deputies say Hauter was babysitting the girl at the time.

The girl reportedly told police she did not touch Hauter and that Hauter touched her over her clothing.

The second victim in this case was 13-years-old or 14-years-old at the time of the incidents, an arrest report states.  The girl is also autistic but was very clear in her communication, deputies say.

An arrest report states Hauter laid down next to the girl in her bed and then put his hands down her pants.  He was reportedly babysitting her at the time.

She told the forensic examiner this occurred more than one time, deputies say.  She added that she never touched Hauter and that she told family members of the incident.

During an audio recorded interview, deputies say Hauter admitted to molesting the 9-year-old.  According to deputies, Hauter said it was a one time thing and he has not touched her since.

Hauter claimed he was smoking synthetic marijuana at the time and did things he should not have done.

Hauter, however, denied molesting the autistic girl.

He is now being held on $30,000 bond.
