CITRUS COUNTY, Fla. – On July 15, 2022, 49-year-old Todd Raymond Geller of Crystal River, Florida, was arrested for Sexual Battery on a Person Under 18, Unlawful Sexual Activity with Certain Minors, and Failing to Report changes as a Sexual Predator.
Geller has been a registered Sexual Predator in the State of Florida, since 2019. He was on Supervised Conditional Release at the time of his most recent arrest and already served 20 years in prison for a similar offense.
On July 12, 2022, the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) was contacted in reference to a juvenile receiving sexually explicit social media messages from Geller.
Responding deputies were provided evidence supporting these allegations. Detective Mike Mission with the CCSO Special Victims Unit (SVU) was assigned to the case and began his investigation.
Detective Mission conducted an interview with the juvenile victim who disclosed sexual activity with Geller that began shortly after his release from prison in 2019. Detective Mission was able to corroborate the victims’ statements along with other evidence to establish enough probable cause for his arrest.
Contact was then made with Geller at the Department of Corrections Parole and Probation Office in Inverness, where he was arrested.

“Geller had been incarcerated for over two decades for Sexual Battery upon a minor. Almost immediately upon his release, he chose to re-offend again,” said Sheriff Mike Prendergast. “He is a Sexual Predator in the truest sense of the word and has shown he is beyond rehabilitation. Predators like Geller are why the detectives of the Special Victims Unit are essential to the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office and our mission to keep this community safe. We will continue working in partnership with the State Attorney’s Office to ensure Geller will never terrorize another child.”
Geller is being held at the Citrus County Jail without bond.
