Would you trust this man with you teenage daughter? Florida man Ramon Renfro seems to have been permitted to take six teenagers camping, before allegedly getting them drunk with the hard alcohol he brought along, and then sexually assaulting the three girls, ages 14, 15 and 16.

The trip took place from February 8-9, 2013, and the victims went to police after they got back from the trip, though Renfro was not arrested until May 24. According to the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office, Renfro brought vodka and whiskey, which he allowed the teens to drink. When they were drunk, he is alleged to have sexually assaulted the three girls, and then tattooed the two older victims without their consent.

Investigators say that the self-described tattoo artist inked hearts and the words “baby girl” on one victim, and on the other a barcode and the word “slave.” He must have been feeling sentimental. According to the police report, “(One of the victims) started crying due to displeasure, but Renfro continued and stated to (her) ‘don’t move, it will mess up the tattoo.’”

Renfro is charged with battery, sexual assault, two counts of lewd and lascivious behavior and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. According to the State Attorney’s Office he was on probation for a failure to return hired or leased property charge.
