A Gainesville man with a previous history of sexual activity with children was arrested Thursday after deputies say he participated in a sex act in June with a then-14-year-old boy.

Alachua County sheriff's deputies said Kevin Wayne Williams, 40, of 10184 SW 92nd St., and the boy were smoking cigarettes in Williams' car on June 1 at 2 p.m. when Williams began to fondle himself and touch the boy outside his clothes, the report said.

The victim told police Williams had him perform a sex act, after which he left the car and called authorities, deputies reported.

The victim, now 15, identified Williams in a lineup on Thursday, and evidence collected from the victim in June matched Williams' DNA, the report said.

Williams is a registered sexual predator in Alachua County with cases dating from 1993.

Williams was charged Thursday with a felony count of lewd and lascivious behavior on a victim between 12 and 16 years old and another felony count of promoting sexual activity to a victim less than 18, according to the report. He was booked into the Alachua County jail and remained there Friday without bond.

Williams had been a youth leader at Holy Faith Catholic Church in Gainesville in 1993 when he was charged with seven counts of lewd and lascivious assault on a church youngster.

He pleaded no contest to two of the counts and was sentenced to one year of community control and two years' probation.

In 1996, Williams was arrested in North Carolina on warrants from Alachua and Marion counties involving a Gainesville youth who had moved to Marion County and then left the state with Williams, authorities said at the time.

Databases from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Florida Department of Corrections identify Williams as a sexual predator. However, they do not indicate that he served any prison time.
