Volusia Man Arrested For Sex With 4-Year-Old Girl
DELTONA, Florida — A Deltona man is under arrest after pictures surfaced of the man allegedly having sex with a 4-year-old girl.
22-year-old Thomas Fleming was arrested Friday night and so far faces two counts of sexual battery.
However, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office’s Sex Crimes Unit is continuing to investigate and additional charges are pending.
The investigation was launched on Friday after pictures of Fleming allegedly having sex with the child were discovered on his ex-girlfriend’s cell phone. Fleming is suspected of having sex with the girl on numerous occasions.
During questioning, Volusia deputies say that Fleming admitted to having sex with the child and taking pictures of the two of them during the sexual encounters and then sending them to a woman who was his girlfriend at the time. Fleming also shot video clips of the sexual activity as well from his cell phone.
After the images were discovered, the Sex Crimes Unit along with Sheriff’s investigators who specialize in working Internet crimes against children were able to quickly use their technological and investigative skills to access the images for evidentiary purposes, track down the suspect and secure an arrest in a matter of hours.
Fleming was booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail in Daytona Beach shortly before midnight on Friday and is being held without bond. Anyone with information about Fleming or additional victims is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office’s Sex Crimes Unit at (386) 323-3574.

This was NOT sex! It was NOT a sexual encounter! Sex is between two consenting ADULTS! It is the WORST kind of rape...the heinous attack upon an innocent CHILD! Call it what it is...A perverse MONSTER preying upon the helpless!!!
Fleming did not "have sex with a 4-year-old," and he was not arrested for "Arrested For Sex With 4-Year-Old Girl" as your headline asserts. If we want to be specific, he was arrested for sexual battery - that was the charge. Is sexual battery sex? No. Sexual battery is rape. The video does not show Fleming having sex with a 4-year-old girl. The video shows Fleming RAPING a 4-year-old girl. Words matter. Trying to lessen the shock, or sugarcoat the story by referring to his actions as "sex" does a disservice to the victims and to all victims and survivors of rape and sexual abuse. What happened was rape. Not sex. Rape.
We need the death penalty for people like him.
This isn't sex. It is rape. There were no "sexual encounters." This child was raped.
THIS IS NOT SEX. THERE IS NO CONSENT. RAPE IS RAPE. THIS IS VIOLENT RAPE. SHAME ON THE WRITER OF THIS ARTICLE. SHAME SHAME SHAME.
The man didn't have sex with her; he RAPED her.
