UFI prosecutor Anivi Ingrid Schott aggravated the charge of a man who is accused of having raped an 11-year-old “niece”. It is that during the investigation new elements of conviction arose that further complicate the suspect, since it is believed that he also subdued the minor through groping and other maneuvers that led the Prosecutor’s Office to also charge him with the crime of seriously outrageous sexual abuse, judicial sources said.
The man, who was not identified to protect the victim, has been released. Initially, when the case began to be investigated, he was arrested and ordered to pre-trial, but later his defense complained and the Court of Appeal released him.
This Friday, prosecutor Schott (assisted by assistant Laura Maldonado) once again requested preventive detention for the accused, emphasizing that he had not complied with the measures that had been imposed on him when he was released, such as periodically appearing before the OMA (Office of Alternative Measures).
It should be noted that the suspect has problems that require him to use crutches. Today he declared that sometimes he could not attend the OMA for this reason, a theory supported by Carlos Fleurí, representative of the official defense.
The Judge of Guarantees Diego Sánz did not accept the request made by the Public Prosecutor’s Office and ordered that the accused continue the process in freedom.
The case began to be investigated in October last year. With the expansion of the accusation this Friday, the suspect is charged with the crimes of sexual abuse with carnal access and seriously outrageous sexual abuse. Both aggravated by the situation of coexistence and custody, the spokesmen explained.
Although there is no blood relationship, the minor treated the defendant as “uncle”. They both lived in the same house, in Capital. Today the girl is 12 years old, while the alleged abuse occurred when she was 11.
The suspect was excluded from that home and currently sleeps in a homeless shelter.
