Alaska Businessman Won’t be Charged in Florida

Charges have been dropped against a former Alaska businessman who had been accused of sexually assaulting a 6-year-old southwest Florida girl.

The State Attorney’s Office in Sarasota filed documents this week saying it would not pursue charges against William C. Weimar. Before retiring to Florida, Weimar became rich owning a chain of halfway houses in Alaska.

The sheriff’s office had initially filed charges against Weimar after the girl made statements about him to her mother. Weimar was arrested in February after authorities found him on his yacht in Cancun, Mexico. He had been contacted by authorities about the allegations before leaving Florida.
