HIV+ SoFla Man Accused Of Having Sex With 14-Year-Old

A South Florida man who is HIV positive is accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl.

Authorities arrested 55-year-old Charles Bell on Wednesday in Davie. 

Bell faces three counts of lewd and lascivious acts on a child between 12 and 16 years old, one count of using or allowing a child to engage in sex and one count of causing or allowing the use of computer pornography by a minor, jail records showed.

Police said Bell had unprotected sex with the underage girl, and there could be more victims.

Authorities said that when Bell was arrested, officers found multiple images of child pornography on his phone, including some showing him sexually battering the young girl. 

The girl is being tested to make sure they aren't infected with HIV, officials said.

Bell was being held without bond Thursday, jail records showed. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
