LAS CRUCES, Texas - A family acquaintance of five years is facing molestation charges after Las Cruces police detectives discovered the man allegedly had engaged in sexual activities with the young victim.
Police investigators said 38-year-old Rodrigo L. Escarsega had performed sexual activities with the victim on several occasions while her mother was away from home.
The girl's mother became suspicious when she discovered that her daughter had access to adult content on the family computer. She confronted her daughter and learned that Escarsega has shown her daughter pornographic videos in the past few weeks, said police.
Detectives investigated the allegations. Escarsega was charged with 10 counts of criminal sexual penetration of a child under the age of 13. The charges are all first-degree felony counts.
Escarsega is being held in the Dona Ana County Detention Center with a $100,000 cash-only bond.
