A Weston podiatrist was behind bars Thursday after authorities say he molested his teen babysitter then paid her to keep her quiet about it.
Augustine Bollo, 45, has been charged with one count of lewd and lascivious molestation in the April 25 incident at his Weston home, according to a Broward Sheriff's Office arrest report.
According to the report, the 15-year-old girl was baby sitting at Bollo's home in the 1400 block of Kite Court when he forced or enticed her to touch his penis while they were sitting on a sofa.
Bollo then took the girl upstairs and paid her $300 and "advised her not to tell her parents," the report said.
The report said Bollo later admitted the act to the girl's mother and apologized.
Bollo was arrested Wednesday night and was being held on $10,000 bond Thursday. It was unknown whether he has an attorney.
