Man, 38, accused of sex with two 16-year-old girls

PORT RICHEY — A 38-year-old Hudson man was arrested Wednesday after, deputies say, he carried on a sexual relationship with two 16-year-old girls.

Both girls told deputies they started working with Larry Edward Burchett at the beginning of summer, though a Pasco Sheriff's report did not list a place of employment. On several occasions, they would both perform oral sex on him, the report states.

When deputies arrested Burchett, of 12135 Ensley Ave. in Hudson, the report states, he told them he had oral sex with one of the girls 12 times prior to his interaction with both girls.

He was booked into the Land O'Lakes jail on 13 counts of unlawful sexual activity with certain minors and remained there Friday in lieu of $130,000 bail.
