Narrative
On March 13th, 2018 I, Detective Matthew Piloto, was made aware of a YouTube video which potentially violated Florida State Statue
794.03 by broadcasting a video containing the identity of a sex offense victim.

Youtube Video in Violation

On January 29th, 2018, Youtube subscriber "rodney mcgee" posted a video titled "Has Judge Burns Helped a man sodomized an 11
year old girl."

The video shows Rodney L. McGee (DOB 12/5/69) filming himself with a video camera. Rodney was easily identifiable in the video
due to his many prior booking photos and contacts with Charlotte County Sheriff's Deputies in the past. In the video, Rodney begins
to voice his dislike for Charlotte County Judges. Rodney specifically speaks about a sexual offense case involving Raymundo Garza
and 1 - Sex Bat/Ag Child Rodney broadcasts that 1 - Sex Bat/Ag ... was a sexual offense victim in a previous
crime where Raymond Garza molested her.

Narrative - Continued

I also learned this same video was re-posted on YouTube subscriber page "charlottecountyflcopwatch2" titled "DID CHARLOTTE
COUNTY Judge JOHN Burns help a man sodomize a 11 year old girl, WHAT DO U THINK ?"

The beginning of this re-posted video begins with an infomercial page showing "Charlottecountyflcopwatch" Facebook page
followed by the CarMarshal.com homepage. There is a voice heard speaking during this infomercial which is known to be that of
Andrew B. Sheets (DOB 4/14/65). Andrew Sheets is well-known amongst Charlotte County Sheriff's Office employees due to
numerous face-to-face contacts and his outspoken comments about his Charlotte County Cop Watch YouTube channel. Many
employees are able to readily identify his voice as the person speaking before the video begins to play. Additionally, the Charlotte
County Sheriff's Office has had several encounters with Andrew Sheets where he identifies himself as the owner and operator of the
Charlotte County Cop Watch YouTube channel.

The URL address for this video is:


"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpIPfnG1jHo"

I also learned that Andrew Sheets posted a link to the video on his Facebook page on January 30th, 2018. The Facebook page is
identified with the name "Andrew Sheets."

video.

Contact with 1 - Sex Bat/Ag Child

On September 26th, 2018 I made phone contact with 1 - Sex Bat/Ag Child in reference to this investigation. 1 - Sex Bat/Ag ... was unaware of the
YouTube videos that disclosed her information about being a sexual offense victim.

was very upset and concerned that her information was now available to everyone with access to the internet. 1 - Sex Bat/Ag...
1 - Sex Bat/Ag ...

confirmed that she was a victim of sexual assault many years ago. The perpetrator was Raymundo Garza. 1 - Sex Bat/Ag... advised the
sexual assaults took place over the course of several years in both Texas and Florida. When 1 - Sex Bat/A... was younger, she reported
these incidents to law enforcement and medical personnel but nothing was ever done. Once she became older, she had gotten over
the abuse issues between her and Raymundo and no longer wanted to pursue the matter.

also advised that she was a witness to Raymundo's sexual abuse toward another young girl who was under the age of 12.
1 - Sex Bat/Ag ...

That case was investigated by the North Port Police Department and Raymundo was eventually arrested and convicted of Lewd /
Lascivious Molestation. During that investigation, 1 - Sex Bat/Ag ... provided a statement to the North Port Police Department describing
her witness account and; a description of her own sexual abuse. However, 1 - Sex Bat/Ag ... no longer wanted to deal with the issue and
was mostly concerned that another victim was exposed to the abuse she had endured for years. 1 - Sex Bat/Ag ... expressed her desire to
be left out of an investigation because she did not want her personal life to be exposed to anyone.

personally knows Rodney McGee because she use to be friends with his son, Troy McGee. 1 - Sex Bat/Ag ... does not know
1 - Sex Bat/Ag ...

Andrew Sheets. 1 - Sex Bat/Ag... never told Rodney about her past abuse and is not sure how Rodney would have found out. 1 - Sex Bat/Ag... did
tell her friend Troy about her past but trusted that he would not disclose the information to anyone else. 1 - Sex Bat/Ag... guesses that
Rodney may have gotten this information from Troy.

Now that 1 - Sex Bat/Ag ... is aware of the videos, she is very upset that her personal information is available on the internet. It has brought
up many issues with her family and current boyfriend. It has also caused 1 - Sex Bat/Ag ... to recall many of the traumatic events that she
had previously forgotten.

Later in the afternoon of September 26th, 2018 I met with 1 - Sex Bat/A... in person and she provided a recorded statement.

Previous Reports with 1 - Sex Bat/Ag Child

1. North Port Police Department report #2012-06-1073

In June of 2012 the North Port Police Department investigated a sexual battery between Raymundo Garza and 9-year-old 1 - Sex Bat/Ag ...

other incidents between her and Raymundo Garza that had been occurring for several years, when she was juvenile. Despite the fact
1 - Sex Bat/Ag ... was a victim of sexual battery, she no longer wanted to pursue the matter and wanted to focus the investigation on the

new victim, 1 - Sex Bat/Ag Child . Raymundo Garza was interviewed during this investigation and provided a confession to committing
sexual battery against 1 - Sex Bat/Ag Child and 1 - Sex Bat/Ag Child

2. Department of Children and Families report #2010-053729-01

Florida Supreme Court many years ago. Andrew Sheets also voiced is frustration with being investigated over a YouTube video and
provided a hard copy of the subpoena I submitted for his Facebook account. This encounter again confirms that Andrew Sheets is

Investigative Notes

When I discovered the video in violation, I contacted YouTube and Google to notify them of the sensitive content. I requested they
remove the video to prevent 1 - Sex Bat/Ag C... rom being re-victimized any further.

As the investigation continued, the videos were removed from both of Andrew Sheets' YouTube channels. However, the video has
still remained on Rodney McGee's page. I sent another notice to YouTube, requesting it to be taken down.

This report contains screen-shot images of the YouTube pages from Rodney McGee and Andrew Sheets' accounts. It also contains

Narrative - Continued
screen-shot images of Andrew Sheets' Facebook page that posted the link to the YouTube video as well as the links to his YouTube
videos which show his admissions to the crime.

For each of the YouTube videos related to this case, to include the one that broadcasts the identity of the sex offense victim; I
recorded the videos through a web-based converter, Peggo, which is specifically used to record videos from YouTube. When I
located the video in violation and the videos of supporting evidence, I copied the URL from the YouTube site, placed them into the
Peggo web-site which then produced an unaltered recorded copy. Those copies were then placed on a CD and submitted to
evidence.

On September 24th, 2018; when Andrew Sheets spoke with Sergeant Wagner and Lieutenant Heck, he provided a copy a Florida
Supreme Court ruling regarding Florida State Statue 794.03. Upon my review of the ruling, it appears the Florida Supreme Court ruled
on a specific case with a specific set of circumstances that led to the disclosure of a sexual offense victim. In the case, it specifically
mentions that the person held responsible for broadcasting the sexual offense victims information had lawfully obtained the
information, and therefore could not be held responsible for its disclosure. This set of circumstances is different from the case
dealing with Andrew Sheets and Rodney McGee. However, the court ruling was added to this case so it can be reviewed and
considered by the State Attorney's Office.

Summary

Since was 4-years-old, she was a victim of sexual battery. She was forced to endure a lifetime of molestation from
1 - Sex Bat/Ag Child

, Raymundo Garza. Although she made several attempts to report these incidents, there was never enough evidence
1 - Sex Bat/Ag Child

to charge Raymundo Garza.

When 1 - Sex Bat/Ag ... became an adult, she became a mentor for a young girl by the name of 1 - Sex Bat/Ag Child . When 1 - Sex Bat/Ag Child was
9-years-old, she became a sexual battery victim of Raymundo Garza. Raymundo Garza was later arrested and convicted of the
offense.

During the investigation, 1 - Sex Bat/Ag Child had to relive her childhood and share her stories of being molested by Raymundo. Since so
much time had passed, 1 - Sex Bat/Ag Child had moved on with her life and no longer wanted to pursue her cases. 2 - Victim Amend 6 did
not want her personal information out for the public to see and wished to remain a non-reporting victim.

On January 29th, 2018 and January 30th, 2018 1 - Sex Bat/Ag Child was re-victimized when Rodney McGee and Andrew Sheets posted a
video to their individual YouTube channels. The videos not only broadcasted 1 - Sex Bat/Ag Child identity on the world wide web, they
clearly identified her as a sexual offense victim and named the man responsible for molesting her.

An investigation was initiated in efforts to show proof that the video seen on these YouTube channels were in fact from Rodney
McGee and Andrew Sheets. I began submitting subpoena requests for information pertaining to the YouTube channels and Facebook
page responsible for posting this video. Due to the limited amount of information available through a subpoena process, I was only
able to verify the account members name, email addresses and phone numbers that matched the records of the Charlotte County
Sheriff's Office database; to that of Rodney McGee and Andrew Sheets.

However, once an investigation was initiated and Andrew Sheets became aware of it, he proceeded to post numerous YouTube
videos confirming that he and Rodney McGee were responsible for posting the video. These videos included copies of the
subpoenas sent to their accounts, long rants about their frustration about being investigated for the video, naming the specific
statue they were being investigated and even a video where Rodney McGee and Andrew Sheets sit down during an inmate visitation
and discuss the facts of this case. This included confirmation they posted the video that identifies 1 - Sex Bat/Ag Child as a sex offense
victim.

Conclusion

Based on the details of my investigation to include subpoena results, victim statement and YouTube videos from Andrew Sheets
admitting responsibility of this crime; probable causes exists for the arrest of Rodney McGee and Andrew Sheets for violation of the
Florida State Statue 794.03 which is defined under the Sexual Battery chapter as broadcasting the identity of a sexual offense victim.

I am requesting this case be sent to the State Attorney's Office for review and consideration for a criminal summons.
