A 16 year old Chiefland High School student was arrested yesterday by the Levy County Sheriff’s Office School Resource Division after an elementary age student complained of being propositioned by the suspect.
The incident occurred after school on March 30, 2017 on the school bus as the children were being transported from school. Shortly after the incident, the victim told school officials that a high school boy made inappropriate sexual advances. During the bus ride, the high school boy moved into the seat next to the victim and continued to make advances.
The suspect did not expose himself on the bus. School Resource Deputy Gregory conducted interviews with both the victim and suspected male student before he made the arrest. Jonathon Brice (6-21-2000) of Chiefland was arrested and transported to the Levy County Detention Facility. He has been charged with Lewd and Lascivious Conduct by a Person Under 18. He was transferred to the Department of Juvenile Justice then released to his parents after placing him on house arrest and fitted with an electronic ankle monitor.
