Summary of Incident:
On August 6, 2014, the Margate Police Department, in a joint investigation with the South Florida Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, arrested Kevin Blaine Millsap for several charges related to soliciting a minor for sex.
An investigation was conducted in reference to text messages that were sent to the fifteen (15) year old female victim. The text message conversations were continued with a detective from ICAC playing the role of the victim. Over the course of the next several days, numerous sexually explicit photographs were transmitted via text. Millsap directed the conversation which became sexual in nature, and ultimately devised a plan to pick up the victim with the intention to engage in sexual activity. Millsap’s plan was created so as to not alert the victim’s parents that anything unusual was occurring. On August 6th, Millsap traveled to the victim’s residence to pick her up as had been pre-arranged. He was taken into custody by members of ICAC and the Margate Police Department.
The ICAC Task Force brings together local, state and federal partners to investigate and prosecute individuals who use the Internet to exploit children.
Millsap is being held at Broward Sheriff’s Office Main Jail on $70,000 bond.
