He was arrested by the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office on September 29, 2011, for Lewd or Lascivious Molestation of a Child for an incident that occurred at a private home. Kuntz is currently on probation for that offense and is a registered sex offender.

Detectives arrested Kuntz this morning and charged him with six counts of Lewd or Lascivious Molestation of a Child Less than 12 Years Old. He is currently being held without bond.
