Summerfield, Florida — Two Summerfield men were arrested after an investigation revealed that they had inappropriate contact with a 15-year-old girl.

According to reports, on December 18, 2015, the victim’s mother reported that Dontray R. Smith, 20, had sexual intercourse with her daughter.

The 15-year-old stated that Dontray invited her to his house because he “wanted to talk.” However, the victim said that when she arrived at his house, which was just down the road from her residence, he told her he wanted to have sex with her. The victim told investigators that she told him no, but that he kept insisting, and she eventually “gave in.”

The incident took place in the backyard at Smith’s residence.

In a separate investigation, investigators found that Coty A. Romaire, 30, had sent the victim photos of himself with his penis exposed via Yahoo e-mail. Authorities said they were able to identify Romaire because his face was in the photos. Romaire’s wife also identified the person in the photos as her husband.
