Alleged Sex Offender Was Living In Florida Teen's Bedroom For A Month


A Louisiana man was arrested after the parents of a 15-year-old girl found him hiding in her closet. Authorities said that Johnathan Rossmoine, 36, met the girl on the internet two years ago on a virtual reality social platform known as VRChat. He told police that he traveled to her home in Spring Hill, Florida, to have sex with her on several occasions and had been the area for the past five weeks. 

The girl told investigators that Rossmoine had been living in her bedroom for about a month. He managed to stay out of sight and hid in her closet when her parents were home.

"He and the young lady came up with the idea that he could just stay in her room if he hid in the closet whenever the parents came in," Hernando County Sheriff's Office Detective Tom Cameron said. "They kept the bedroom door closed and locked, and whenever someone came to the door, it gave them an opportunity to run and hide in the closet and open up the door to where maybe she was changing or something."

Rossmoine was charged with multiple counts of lewd and lascivious behavior and is being held at the Hernando County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
