PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — Two sailors have been charged with sexual battery against a 16-year-old girl at a motel near Pensacola Naval Air Station.
Ronald Dantinor and Alfonzo Rashawn Bridgett remained in Escambia County Jail on Saturday on charges of first-degree sexual battery. Another sailor was charged as an accessory.
The Pensacola News Journal reports the girl told deputies they forced her into sexual intercourse Friday night and blocked the door so her friends couldn't leave.
The men told deputies the sex was consensual and that the girl told them she was 18. The men said it was the girls' idea to get the room and that they asked the sailors to buy them alcohol. The men said they didn't let the girl leave because they were allegedly too drunk to drive.
