A Citrus County man engaged in sex acts with a 14-year-old girl and videotaped the encounters without the girl's knowledge, deputies say.

Patrick Pearson, 20, of 1484 S. Gettysburg Drive in Homosassa, is charged with lewd and lascivious battery.

In April of this year, a 14-year-old student approached a school resource officer in reference to being videotaped by Pearson while while engaging in sex acts, deputies say.

She reportedly told deputies she began dating Pearson in February and that he was aware of her age. 

She stated that they told his mother that she was 17, but that was a lie, an arrest affidavit states.

According to the teen, Pearson guilted her into having sex with him.

Deputies say Pearson videotaped the teen during the sex acts and the teen was unaware.

Pearson is being held on $10,000 bond.
