Convicted Sex Offender Accused Of Sexually Abusing Teen In Century

April 12, 2018

A local wrestler previously convicted of child sex abuse has been charged with sexually abusing a teen girl in Century. The arrest followed a tip from the girl’s father.

Peter Mika Lotoa, 32, was charged with six felony counts of sexual battery on a victim 16 or 17 years old. He remained in the Escambia County Jail with bond set at $600,000.

The father told investigators that he was friends with Lotoa, and he learned that Lotoa was having a sexual relationship with his 16-year old daughter. The father stated that he had received information from Lotoa’s girlfriend saying that she suspected sexual interaction between the minor and Lotoa.

The dad provided law enforcement with a screen shot of an apology he said he received in a Facebook message from Lotoa in which he stated that he and the teen started out as just friends and he did not mean for it to happen. The Facebook message also says that he cares for the teen and would die for her, and he “knows what the future holds for him,” the arrest report states.

The teen stated that she had unprotected sexual intercourse with Lotoa on six occasion and those dates, from January 8, 2018, to March 14, 2018, were noted in her phone, according to the arrest report. Lotoa was 31 years old during that time period.

Lotoa was arrested Tuesday at an address in the 1100 block of Williams Ditch Road.

He was previously convicted of lewd and lascivious battery with a victim age 12-15 in March 2005 and sentenced to three years in state prison.

    He was sentenced prior for only 3 years for ruining a child’s life. THREE years what is this world coming too. Whatever judge that was needs to be disbarred.
