Man Convicted for Sexual Assault and Impregnating a Juvenile

The Herald-Tribune reported Corey Duane Primus’ “open plea” on October 4, 2022. He was convicted of impregnating a juvenile, sexually assaulting a child under 18, and using a computer to persuade a child to commit a sexual act. Primus reportedly lived with the victim and her family in July 2021. He reportedly texted the teenage victim late at night and early morning to “perform sex acts on him.” He would watch the child when the parents departed. Reports indicate sexual activity occurred during this time.

When Sarasota police investigated, they found the 13-year-old pregnant. Numerous texts between Primus and the victim revealed it was his child. Despite the pregnancy, Primus allegedly demanded sexual favors from the victim. WWSB reported terminating the pregnancy after DNA tests revealed Primus was the father.

40-year Sentence for Sexually Assaulting a Juvenile

The prosecution wanted Primus imprisoned for life, but the defense suggested 10 years in prison and 10 years of probation. Primus received a 40-year sentence from Judge Rochelle Curley. He is a sexual predator and cannot contact the victim or her family. The Sarasota Police Department investigated when the victim’s parents heard about the incidents from one of her siblings, according to the report.

Curley heard from the victim’s parents and Primus’ 2015 and 2016 Polk County allegations. She studied the case, including Primus and the victim’s text conversations. The Herald-Tribune noted that Assistant State Attorney S. Ethan Dunn, the case’s primary prosecutor, lauded Detective Angela Cox of the Sarasota Police Department and Master Deputy Brett Socha of the Polk Sheriff’s Office for bringing justice to the child victim. “This defendant preyed on children in this home,” Dunn said. “The victim’s courage to report the abuse and her family and law enforcement’s support have ensured that the Defendant will not harm any children in our community for a long time.”
