DELAND MAN CHARGED WITH SEXUAL BATTERY OF A CHILD

A 27-year-old DeLand man has been arrested on three counts of sexual battery of a child, and detectives are continuing to investigate to determine whether there are any additional victims.

Emmett L. Boykins (DOB 9/10/1992) was arrested Wednesday afternoon and remains held without bond at the Volusia County Branch Jail.

Boykins had previously worked at Stetson University and volunteered at churches in the DeLand area. The investigation revealed he had supervised and potentially unsupervised access to children. Anyone who may believe themselves or their children may have been victimized by Boykins should call the Volusia Sheriff’s Office Child Exploitation Unit at 386-323-3574.

No further details are available for release at this time as the investigation is active and ongoing. Additional information will be released in the future as it becomes available.
