Bradenton man arrested on multiple sex-related charges

A 31-year-old Bradenton man was arrested Jan. 17 on a variety of sex-related charges after being netted in a sting operation.

Timothy Jasonis allegedly held an Internet conversation with an adult in which Jasonis was to purchase a juvenile from the girl’s “guardian” for the purpose of sexual intercourse.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Jasonis then held a text conversation Jan. 17 with the guardian, saying he would have intercourse and not hurt the girl.

Jasonis agreed to meet the guardian that same day at Robinson Preserve and to take the girl with him.

Instead, Jasonis was greeted by Manatee County Sheriff’s Office detectives, who had posed as the guardian during the electronic conversations.

Jasonis was arrested for use of a computer to solicit a parent of a child to commit sexual acts, attempted sexual battery, and travel to solicit a parent of a child to commit sexual acts.

He was booked into the Manatee County jail and held on $75,000 bond. He remained in custody as of Islander press time.

Jasonis was scheduled to be arraigned at 9 a.m. Friday, Feb. 15, at the Manatee County Judicial Center, 1051 Manatee Ave. W., Bradenton.

    I’m still EXTREMELY ANNOYED about this sting going down at the Preserve. Too many places to run and hide, and big enough open space to pull it off. Doesn’t matter whose idea it was to meet there, IT WAS A ROTTEN ONE. Next time some perv says meet me there, have another plan ready.

    Now, most who walk there every GD day, will be wondering……and FEAR is never a good thing.

    Please DON’T USE THE ROBINSON PRESERVE for such meetings. Way too many families, and neighbors, from the community go there every single day. Meet these sorry, sick, souls on the causeway, and keep the PRESERVE PEVERT FREE. Thank you very much.
