Brandin Michael Deoliveira, 27, a resident of 35 Roxland Lane in Palm Coast, was arrested and booked at the Flagler County jail this afternoon on five counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor girl.
According to his arrest report, Deoliveira took the girl when she was 16 and 17 to beach areas in Marineland and the Hammock’s Malacompra area “on several occasions to engage in sexual intercourse with the juvenile.” The girl disclosed to investigators that Deoliveira allegedly became “increasingly more aggressive with her and at one point slapped her in the face and choked her to the point where she could not breathe.”
The arrest report alleges that Deoliveira threatened the girl that he would kill her and her family if she disclosed the sexual relationship to anyone, “and at one point made her hold his handgun, which caused her to fear for her life,” the arrest report states. The alleged victim said the incidents took place from October to the beginning of December, and provided “additional specific details” of the incidents as they occurred.
A firearm was located in Deoliveira’s vehicle subsequent to a search warrant being served. Detectives obtained telephone records that showed some 600 text messages and 20 calls, including instances of Deoliveira sending images and videos of his genitals.
“A man’s value is only defined by the value and happiness he brings to his family,” Deoliveira once wrote on his Facebook page. His arrest is the latest blow to his employer, Captain’s BBQ at Bing’s Landing, the restaurant in the popular public park in the Hammock that’s been at the center of a controversy over a planned expansion at the park opposed by many. Deoliveira has been a manager at Captain’s since July 2014.
“As one of the owners of Captains BBQ, we DO NOT CONDONE Mr. Deoliveira’s conduct,” Chris Herrera wrote on FlaglerLive’s Facebook page late this evening. “We spoke directly to Sheriff [Staly] after we learned of his arrest and will cooperate in anyway we can with the FCSO’s investigation.”
Deoliveira so far faces five counts of illegal sexual activity with a minor, a second-degree felony that in Florida, when ignorance of the alleged victim’s age–if proffered–or the victim’s alleged consensual participation is not a defense.
The charge applies when the perpetrator is 24 or older, and the victim 16 or 17. A person found guilty of a second-degree felony faces up to 15 years in prison, though absent a prior record the penalty is usually less severe, but still carries a mandatory minimum of five and a half years in prison on conviction, a multi-year term of sex-offender probation, and a designation of the assailant as a sexual offender, which carries its own set of restrictions.
The investigation is ongoing, with further search warrants yet to be served, the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office says.
“I commend the victim for her bravery in coming forward,” Sheriff Rick Staly was quoted as saying in a release issued this evening. “This guy took advantage of a child and thought he could scare her into hiding the truth.” No bond has yet been set for Deoliveira.
Dang, somebody’s about to get barbecued!
Birds of a feather says
Maybe he’ll call Nate McLaughlin and Craig Coffey for bond money and convince the Sheriff to give him a bargain on bond.
Josh Davis says
Another instance where “innocent until proven guilty” and our rule of Constitutional law is completely ignored by Cowboy Rick and his ridiculous concept of our legal system is rudimentarily displayed.
Captains BBQ says
Captains BBQ does not condone Mr. Deoliveira’s conduct. We have spoken directly to Sheriff Staley after we learned of his arrest and will cooperate in anyway we can with the FCSO’s investigation.
Concerned Citizen says
What a real man. Beating and slapping a young girl into submission and then using threats to coerce her. I bet you are real proud huh? I bet you wouldn’t try to beat or slap a grown man. Most pervs are scared of other men.
Guys I have said it before and will say it again. Stay away from the young girls. You have no business messing with them. That’s someones daughter you are messing with.
I hope the Sheriff’s Office is able to deny bail for this ass-hat. I also hope that further investigation stacks more charges. I also hope that the SA and DA do their job and prosecute accordingly. And that a judge sentences accordingly.
I suppose Captains BBQ will try and exert their influence with the County to get this dude off. Either way one more reason I have lost respect for Captains BBQ.
Lastly to the young girl involved. You were a victim of a crime. I hope you will get the help you need to deal with this.
If you are an abuser of women and children you deserve the severest penalties possible.
Willy Boy says
Still plenty of cars in the lot. Can’t beat good BBQ.
Hoping the victim will be ok. This predator needs a long time away especially threats with a weapon
Yea. I told Mike and Chris to make me manager because I didn’t trust this a$$hole. Look at y’all now. I have to say ha. And ha. Plus he made fun of nick when he passed away. AND you wanna expand. Go. Some. Where. Else. This was my favorite job and it was made to be such a micromanaged mess. Sorry to you.
Even if he turns into a sex offender….don’t you guys worry. FCSO won’t check where he lives at. He can move 14 times and the sheriffs office never checks. They let them roam free. Tell me I’m a liar. Oops…did I speak from experience with these people? I’ll deadass prove it.
This is just an additional liability of this restaurant sitting in Bings Landing to our youth frequenting the park!
Jane Gentile-Youd says
Hope Bing’s Landing was never the site of one of these attacks. You make sure of that Mr. Hadeed before we have another lawsuit…
If this guy is guilty of the charges described above, he should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. it does seem strangely coincidental, though, that these charges are coming at the same time that the restaurant is in a heated legal dispute with disgruntled locals defending what they feel to be their turf.
@Josh davis, really with over 600 texts messages to include photo’s of his junk. Please give it a rest. There are times, when the right person gets arrested.
A wise man once said – “Don’t get your meat, where you get your bread.” Pun may be intended.
Willy Boy… Captain’s hasn’t had good BBQ in the past 2 or 3 years. There was a time they couldn’t be beat but things changed. I suggest you try Baynes BBQ at Flagler Beach. Much much better than Captain’s and the chain store BBQ.
An establishment has no control over an employee’s personal life and I don’t make any decisions based on that. That is up to the judicial system. If Captain’s had the BBQ I wanted, I would still go there.
jim huston says
Over 20 phone calls and sending 600 texts including pictures and videos of his genitals to a 16 and 17 year old, is pretty incriminating.

it seems like everyone commenting doesn’t really even care about the victim smh
