We are not naming him in the story, to help protect the victim’s privacy, and to not create any searchable record or tags of the associated name, but the photo you see is the face of 22-year-old man charged with 4 counts of rape of a child, his 11-year-old sister. He is currently held in lieu of a $600,000 bond & an ICE-Detainer hold.
Metro Police say the 22-year-old man was interviewed on January 31, after his 11-year-old sister reported to her mother she was pregnant by her brother. During an interview, he admitted to having sexual intercourse with the child as recently as this month (January 2019), and as far back as August of 2018. He also admitted to performing oral sex on the child while they lived at their old home prior to August of 2018, when the child was only 10. Since moving to their new home in August of 2018, he also admitted to having the child perform oral sex on him at the home.
The 22-year-old is charged with four counts rape of a child, and has an immigration hold on his release, aka an ‘ICE-Detainer’. He was previously charged with theft and no driver’s license in 2015 – both charges were dismissed.
Editorial Note: We decided this was the best way to report on the charges, while maintaining privacy. Anyone that recognizes him would likely already be aware of the situation, and this creates no searchable query of the related name(s) of any person involved. His information, including his name, remains public record, and is readily available from many public data sources. The decision to not include his name is a choice, not a requirement, and was made solely in an effort to protect the victim’s privacy.
