#AceNewsReport – Aug.01: Authorities in Florida were amazed he was able to remain undetected for so long, slipping in and out of the girl’s closet whenever her parents would leave the house for work.
#AceDailyNews says a man who hid in girl’s closet and abused her while her parents were downstairs Johnathan Lee Rossmoine was sentenced Wednesday to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to having sex with a minor, who he had met through the online virtual reality app VRChat, which uses avatars in place of actual photographs.

The girl had told investigators that Rossmoine was her boyfriend and that she initially told him she was 18 before admitting she was only 15 when they met in person, according to authorities. However, he did not attempt to end the relationship upon learning of her actual age, according to authorities.
Fox 13 reports that deputies with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office responded to a bizarre call at a home in Spring Hill in September 2020. The parents of a teenager reported that they had found a man hiding in their child’s bedroom.
Police went upstairs and discovered the 36-year-old still in the closet.
The outlet says Rossmoine told deputies he had driven from his home state of Louisiana to Spring Hill, Florida, several times to have sex with the 15-year-old.
Police said he told them he had been living off and on in the teen’s bedroom since August 2020, but had been there steadily in the weeks before they found him. He would hide in the closet when the victim’s parents were home, only coming out when they left for work, according to HCSO.
‘Although the specifics of this case were somewhat unusual, the basics are not. All too often children have too much free time, and their online activities are not monitored by their parents,’ Hernando County Police Department spokesman Michael Terry told Mail Online.
‘Adults who are communicating with children via social media for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity need to understand they will spend many years behind bars when caught.’
Rossmoine said there were numerous sexual encounters in his van, which was parked close to the victim’s house.
He was charged with four counts of lewd and lascivious behavior with a victim between the ages of 12 and 16, obscene communication, and traveling to meet after using a computer to lure a child.
In addition to the 15-year sentence, Rossmoine will receive 10 years of sex offender probation upon his release and be required to report as a sexual offender for life.
