Holmes County Man Arrested on Sex Crime Charges

A Florida man has been arrested for a capital sex crime.

45-year-old Christopher Stephen Powers is charged with capital sexual battery.

Sexual battery in Florida becomes a capital offense if the victim of the crime is under 12 years of age.

Investigators say Powers maintained residences in both Holmes and Bay Counties. There may be more victims in the case.

Anyone with information should contact the Bay County Sheriff's department or the Holmes County Sheriff's department.

Powers is being held in the Bay County Jail under a $100,000 bond.

He faces up to life behind bars if he's convicted.
