WINTER GARDEN, Fla. - A registered sex offender was arrested on Saturday after deputies say he touched a girl inappropriately while selling soda to minors.

Eddie Carter, 64, has been charged with lewd and lascivious molestation in the incident, according to Orange County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said the 13-year-old victim went to the house of Carter, who is known as "Reb," on Coscester Street just before 4 p.m. to buy a soda.

Carter told the girl to come inside the den to get her Pepsi and the girl followed him, deputies said. Carter then grabbed her shoulders and squeezed her right buttock, according to deputies.

Deputies said the victim told them Carter sells candy and soda to people in the neighborhood, including children.

Carter was taken to Orange County jail, where he is being held on no bond. He was previously convicted of sexual batter of a child under 12 years old, records show.
