Man avoids courtroom case and pleads for interference with little one custody

A Marion County man accused of picking up a minor who claimed to have had sex with her has decided to solve his case and avoid a trial.

District Judge Lisa Herndon accepted a guilty plea from Tyrone Walker for interference with child custody and he was sentenced to 36 months by a plea deal presented in court.

Walker, who has already served 313 days in the Marion County Jail, must fulfill several conditions attached to his parole, records show.

First, he must undergo a psychosexual evaluation within the first 60 days of his care. He must also carry out all recommended treatments and random drug tests at his own expense and must have no contact with the victim or his mother.

Two counts of indecent or lewd assault on a child were not prosecuted by prosecutors’ attorneys. Prosecutors said in a memorandum sent to Lee Fairchild, Walker’s attorney in Ocala, that Walker was convicted and convicted of the disturbance offenses.

On the day of his sentencing, Walker had another hearing on his case. He was scheduled for a priority court hearing next week.

Ocala Police officers took Walker into custody in 2018 after a 13-year-old girl claimed Walker had sex with her. He denied the accusation.

From the report, Walker told a detective that the girl told him she snuck out of her home. He said he drove her and another girl, 12, to an Ocala residence.

Walker said he later dropped the younger girl off at her home and then took the older girl to his Silver Springs Shores home because she needed to rest and shower, the report said.

Officials said the older girl spent several hours with him and he never attempted to contact her family.
