CANTONMENT, Fla. (WEAR) —
A Cantonment man is facing a life felony child sexual abuse charge.
Carlo Antonio Alex Bryant, 30, is charged with lewd and lascivious behavior/molestation of a child.
According to an Escambia County Sheriff's Office (ECSO) report, Bryant allegedly had inappropriate contact with a 10-year-old girl during an incident in May 2016.
Bryant denied the allegations, telling ECSO deputies that he was passed out after drinking "Loco" beer during the time period in which incident was alleged to have occurred.
The victim's mother told authorities that Bryant had inappropriate contact with another child two months earlier, also claiming that he did not know what he was doing because he had been drinking.
Bryant remains in the Escambia County Jail with bond set at $150,000.
