Authorities arrested a 46-year-old accused of sexually abusing minors. When the victims spoke out this year, he reportedly didn't deny it and became "very quiet and teary".

One of the incidents reportedly happened in 2011 while the victim's mother was on a week-long cruise.

On March 28, 2017 the victim told an investigator at the Santa Rosa County Kid's House Glen Copeland first interacted inappropriately in 2011. He reportedly came into the bathroom and asked if he could have a peek under her towel after she stepped out of the shower.

The victim told him 'no' and he left the bathroom. Several times after that, the victim said Copeland would touch her inappropriately on her private parts.

The victim told authorities Copeland once asked her if she likes it "fast or slow". She told him she doesn't like it at all.

Another victim told investigators Copeland first started touching him when he "was around 5 or 6 years old". He said the suspect would "touch him in places he didn't want to be touched in".

He said over the years Copeland would "bribe" him with money or promises of gifts and that the suspect performed anal and oral sex on him before..

Copeland has been charged with lewd or lascivious molesting. He is in the Santa Rosa County Jail with a $300,000 bond.
