James Michael Haymaker, 66, was arrested on two felony counts of sexual assault shortly before 1 p.m. Friday at his home on Amish Path in the Village of Hillsborough.

Haymaker is accused of having sex with the teen to whom he is related, but the exact relationship was unclear as the arrest report was heavily redacted due to the sensitive nature of the case.

Haymaker allegedly told the teen she could bring her boyfriend with her to The Villages the next summer if she allowed Haymaker, who is married, to have sex with her. She laid down on the bed and Haymaker used KY Jelly to prepare the girl for sex, according to the arrest report.

The report came into the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office from the SCAN Child Advocacy Center in Richmond, Va.

Haymaker was taken into custody and booked at the Sumter County Detention Center.
