Man awaiting sex offender trial arrested
Crime

CLEARWATER, Florida (AP) - Authorities say a man who was awaiting trial on charges of molesting a 7-year-old girl is being held without bail after he was arrested for failing to complete sex-offender treatment stemming from another case.

Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies arrested 49-year-old Henry Cavalier on Wednesday. It is the sixth time he's been arrested on sexual offense charges.

The Tampa Bay Times reports Cavaliere is scheduled for trial in March on lewd and lascivious molestation charges. He could face life in prison if convicted.

Sheriff's officials and prosecutors said Thursday that they had recently learned of Cavalier's probation violation. His lawyer declined comment to the Times.

The newspaper reports Department of Corrections officials say Cavalier "failed to pay the cost of supervision" and didn't complete the sex offender aftercare treatment.
