In October 2011, Charlotte County Florida sheriff's deputies arrested Pierre Tony, 17, after receiving a call from a woman at a local hospital claiming that her daughter, 11, had admitted to having sex with Tony at their church, the Bethanie French 7th Day Adventist Church. The woman told deputies that she was unable to find her daughter after services. When she did find the girl and asked her where she had been, the girl told her mother that she had been having consensual sex in the bathroom with Tony. The woman took her child to the hospital for testing and called deputies. Tony and his father went to the sheriff's office voluntarily for an interview, which resulted in the young man's arrest.
