Jason Picard, 27, was arrested Thursday for having an “unlawful sexual relationship” with a 14-year-old in Middleburg, according to a Clay County Sheriff’s Office report.

Picard allegedly met the underaged victim about two years ago through a mutual friend, the victim said in a statement to deputies included in the report. After one of the victim’s friends told their mother about the incident, the mother reported it to authorities. A criminal investigation began, leading the Orange Park Police Department to notify the Clay County Sheriff’s Office about the accusations on May 23.

Picard agreed to meet with deputies at the Main Street Boat Ramp in Middleburg on Thursday for a voluntary interview about the investigation, said the report. Deputies questioned Picard about his intimacy with the victim, and after the interview, Picard was placed under arrest, deputies wrote.

Picard was brought to the Clay County Jail, charged with lewd or lascivious battery of a victim between the ages of 12 to 16. His court date is set for Aug. 8 at 9 a.m. at the Clay County Courthouse
