Man Arrested For Lewd And Lascivious Battery


A 32 year-old St. Petersburg man was arrested for Lewd and Lascivious Battery on a victim under 16 today.

Leonard Bame committed the Battery on the victim at his residence at 6864 38th Avenue North on the evening of 4/9/2014.

According to St. Petersburg Police, Bame met the victim through his employment as a promoter for teen parties held at Caf Charlie in Clearwater. The victim, along with other juveniles, assisted Bame in the promotion of these parties. Bame would often pick up the juveniles from school and take them to various locations to promote the gatherings.
