Central Florida Man Arrested Following Inappropriate Conduct with Minor

A 70-year-old Central Florida man who showed pornographic material to a minor has been arrested.

On March 11, 2024, investigators with Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office’s Special Victims Section received a tip informing them that 70-year-old James Charles Nezbeth showed pornographic material and enticed lewd and lascivious conduct from a minor in May of 2023.

After investigating this tip, detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Nezbeth on March 27th. On March 29th, deputies arrested Nezbeth, and he was charged with the following:

  • Extortion x2
  • Lewd or Lascivious Conduct
  • Sell or Distribute Obscene Material to a Minor

“This individual’s actions are despicable, and I am thankful our team was able to get this man off the streets and stop him from hurting any more potential victims,” said Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister. “If anyone else may be a victim of this man’s disgusting actions, we ask them to come forward and speak to our detectives.”

There may be additional victims and we urge anyone who may have been impacted by Nezbeth to call 813-247-8200.
