SARASOTA, Fla. - Two men have been arrested and charged with Unlawful Sex with Certain Minors and Sexual Performance of a Child after detectives say that had sex with a 16-year-old girl several times and videotaped the acts.

The victim says the incidents took place between July and October 2013.

37-year-old Sean Smart fled the state but was arrested in Ohio on Wednesday.  27-year-old David Bell was arrested in Sarasota on Monday.

A search of Smart's home in the Vamo area uncovered videos depicting the victim having sex with the men, and nude photos of the victim.

Deputies say the men were aware that the victim was just 16 years old and in high school.

Smart has been charged with three counts of Unlawful Sexual Activity with Certain Minors, four counts of Sexual Performance by a Child for directing sexual conduct of the victim, and 11 counts of Sexual Performance by a Child for the pictures and videos.

Bell has been charged with one count of Unlawful Sexual Activity with Certain Minors and one count of Directing or Promoting Sexual Performance by a Child. He is being held on $350,000 bond.
