69 Year Old Florida Man In Neck Brace Accused Of Sex Crimes

An elderly Florida man, seen sporting a massive metal neck brace in his mug shot, was arrested Monday for allegedly performing a series of sex acts on a minor, the News Herald reported.

Thomas George West, 69, is accused of engaging in sex acts with a 17-year-old between Jan. 1 and March 30. The victim told police she and West had sexual relations "too many times to remember," according to an arrest report.

West, of Springfield, has been charged with 15 counts of unlawful sexual acts with a minor.

A police spokesman said the department wasn't sure why West is wearing the brace.

West has previous arrests for driving with a suspended license and stalking a minor, records show.
