A Gainesville man was arrested Tuesday on charges related to sexual battery on a child.

Jerome Robinson, 38, was charged with sexual battery of a person under the age of 12, according to an Alachua County Sheriff's Office arrest report.

The child told investigators that more than 20 instances of sexual activity occurred over several years.

According to the report, Robinson admitted he had molested the child and committed certain sexual acts but denied having sexual intercourse with the child.
