LAKELAND - Police say a Department of Children and Families investigator has been charged with sexual battery.
According to the Lakeland Police Department, Jason Conrad Montgomery, 27, visited the home of a child he was assigned to on Sept. 5. While at the home, he allegedly asked the children in the house to leave and told their mother she "needed" to have sex with him.
Investigators say the woman resisted but felt helpless due to Montgomery's position with DCF. Police say Montgomery sexually battered her on that and another occasion several weeks later.
