FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. – A Palm Coast man was arrested Wednesday night on three counts of sexual battery on a minor, the Flagler County Sheriff's Office said. 

Jerald Medders assaulted a 16-year-old on three different occasions over the last three months, investigators said.  

“I’m very glad this man has been arrested," Sheriff Rick Staly said. "He is truly a disgusting lowlife. He should be under the Green Roof Inn, not in it." 

Medders, 51, was booked into the Flagler County Jail on $150,000 bond.
