BROOKSVILLE, Fla. (WFLA) – A 20-year-old Brooksville man is charged with lewd and lascivious battery on a victim under 16 years of age.

Robert William Nesseralla is charged with two counts of battery on a victim who is older than 12 but younger than 16.

The first incident is reported to have occurred on June 9, 2016, according to the Brooksville Police Department. Police said a second incident occurred on June 15.

“Nesseralla admitted to committing certain sex acts upon the juvenile victim on two separate occasions,” police said. That “corroborated the victim’s testimony,” police said.

The suspect is being held in the Hernando County Jail on a $20,000 bond. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
