A 41-year-old year South Fort Myers man is charged with lewd and lascivious behavior in connection with a molesting case that started when the victim was in the 6th grade.
Shawn Cleaver was arrested Wednesday following an investigation that lasted several days.
According to the arrest report, the victim brought the situation to the attention of law enforcement on August 27 after she discovered nude videos and pictures of herself on a family laptop.
The victim, now in her teens, revealed to investigators that Cleaver started to sexually molest her in the 6th grade. She said cleaver would come into her bedroom as she slept and rub her breasts and vagina over her underwear. The molestation went on for about a year.
Detectives interviewed Cleaver who declined to talk about being read his Miranda Rights. That’s when he was arrested for lewd and lascivious molestation with a victim under 12.
