The Bay County Sheriff’s Office arrested Austin Lee Norris today on charges of Lewd and Lascivious Behavior on a juvenile.
A complaint was filed with the Bay County Sheriff’s Office by a friend of the victim. The friend stated he first learned about the sexual encounter between Norris and the juvenile victim by reading a letter found in the victim’s room. Later, additional information came to the friend through social media sites. He then contacted the victim who admitted the information was true.
BCSO investigators made contact with Norris who stated the victim had asked “what (it) was like” and requested the encounter. 27-year-old Norris, of Panama City, was arrested and taken to the Bay County jail where he was booked.
