A man has been arrested after being accused of having separate sexual relationships with two 13-year-old twin sisters.
Nicholas French, 21, in Sarasota, in the US state of Florida, allegedly had relations with one of the girls in early 2018 when she was 13.
French was 18 at the time. Both twins are now 15.
“Through investigation, detectives learned French also began a sexual relationship with the victim’s twin sister around the same time,” the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office said.
“French reportedly communicated with the victims through social media and used a ride-share service to transport them to his house.”
Police searched French’s home on Friday and claim to have found evidence corroborating allegations against him.
“French was previously arrested in 2018 for Lewd or Lascivious Battery of a Victim 12 to 16 Years Old, which was later amended to two counts of Child Abuse in a plea agreement,” police said.
“At the time of his most recent arrest, he was still on felony probation for his prior conviction.”
The 21-year-old has been charged with 11 new counts of Lewd or Lascivious Battery of a Victim 12 to 16 Years Old, and a single count of Violation of Probation.
He remains in custody today without bond.
