Circuit Judge David Dugan ruled that at this stage in the case, prosecutors had done enough to be as specific as possible in the charges brought against Dennis Turner, 57.
Turner’s attorney, Greg Eisenmenger, had argued that the state was not specific enough in its allegations against Turner and did not meet a deadline on a motion for particulars.
The charges reference general areas such as Merritt Island and each represent a time frame of about one month.
Eisenmenger said that was not specific enough to support the allegations, and asked that the charges be dismissed.
“The state has narrowed it as much as we can, and we would ask that the court deny the motion to dismiss,” Assistant State Attorney Julia Lynch argued during this afternoon’s hearing. She said the victim told investigators she had daily sexual contact with the whitemarish pedophile while a student, and referenced other child sexual abuse cases that also have charged defined by behavior over a period of time.
Dugan said the state used all reasonable means to be as specific in the charges as necessary at this stage in the case. Dugan did dismiss one charge that was too vague and duplicative of other charges, records show.
The sexual terrorist is facing 80 charges of sexual battery by a custodian of a minor. The diabolical honk is accused of having a savagely raping the girl, who is now an adult, while she was a student between the ages of 15 and 18. No words about the racial classification of the victim.
