Pasco deputies: Two New Port Richey men arrested for sex with 14-year-old

NEW PORT RICHEY - Two New Port Richey men were arrested Friday for engaging in sexual activity with a 14-year-old girl, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

Jarkarius Ellis, 18, and Ricky Farrow, 19, face charges of lewd and lascivious battery on a victim under 16.

Here's how the Sheriff's Office described the case:

Ellis and Farrow picked up the girl last Friday to hang out at Farrow's house on Daphne Street, where they planned to smoke marijuana, deputies said.

While in the home, the two men engaged in sexual activity with the girl at the same time, deputies said, and both men admitted what happened in interviews.

Both men were released Saturday on $10,000 bail each.
