A Naples man accused of providing marijuana and alcohol to a minor now faces an attempted sexual battery charge.

Andrew Robert Budz, 24, has since been released from the Naples Jail Center, posting bonds totaling $73,500.

The victim, who is either 16 or 17 according to the charge, told Collier County detectives she was smoking marijuana and drinking alcohol with Budz on the evening of April 1. Deputies found the two the next morning on a mattress inside Budz’s 1997 Ford Aerostar van, according to an arrest report.

Deputies said Budz was naked and the victim was nude from the waist down. The girl was intoxicated and did not remember how she got in van, reports said.

The victim told detectives she passed out after Budz performed sex acts on her and did not know if he continued them once she was asleep. She was given a forensic rape examination, the results of which are pending, according to reports.

Budz did not answer deputies’ questions, invoking his Miranda Rights upon his arrest, according to the reports.
