Clearwater man arrested on sex abuse charges

Posted: Updated:
CLEARWATER (FOX 13) -

A 26-year-old Clearwater man was arrested on sexual battery charges, and the sheriff's office says it happened just a month after his brother was charged with abusing two children.

Omartin Martinez was arrested Friday on capital sex battery charges, deputies said. He is accused of abusing a 9-year-old girl in September and November 2011.

Detectives believe there may be other victims, too. Omartin's brother, Marsanti, was arrested in June on two counts of sexual battery on a pair of boys.

The sheriff's office says Omartin Martinez, who allegedly admitted to the crime, was caring for the 9-year-old.

The crime happened in an "unincorporated part of Clearwater," the sheriff's office said.
