SLC Sheriff Arrests Andrew Halla on Sexual Battery Charges.

Andrew Halla was arrested today for sexual battery. Halla is a registered sex offender and has an extensive, statewide history of criminal convictions including aggravated battery, sexual battery, false imprisonment and failure to register as a sex offender.

According to the Sheriff, a female victim walked into the Sheriff’s Office to report a rape. She stated that on May 15, Halla entered her home. He then  forced her into the bedroom and then held her down while he had sex with her.

“The bravery of this victim to come forward is to be commended,” said Sheriff Ken J. Mascara. “It was clear in her interview with detectives that she was aware of Halla’s violent past and was fearful of him, but she still knew coming forward was important.”

Halla was arrested at 9:37 a.m. in the 3300 block of Orange Avenue. He was booked into the St. Lucie County Jail where he will be held without bond.
