Man Sexually Abuses Young Women
How can sex offenders go under the radar for so long? Does neighbors or someone not find them suspicious? Maybe not. However, in some cases people do notice and they call the authorities.
A man has allegedly been sexually abusing a group of underage girls in Coolidge over a twenty year period. The witnesses have luckily began testifying in the trial for their attacker.
The suspect, Robert Molina’s victims said that the fifty-eight year old man would molest her when she was only twelve years old.
Another witness said that she woke up on night to find Molina fondling her. There will be seven brave young women testifying against Molina. The crimes started in the 1990’s.
Molina has been charged with six counts of child molestation as well as three counts of sexual conduct with a minor and three counts of sexual abuse.
The charges have been classified as, “dangerous crimes against children”. Luckily those cases usually have stricter and tougher penalties.
Police Arrest Sexual Assault Suspect
The prosecutor for this case, David Ahl said that Molina used his hand to sexually gratify himself and to repeatedly violate his victims. He did however, accuse the defendant saying that he put his hands down the children’s pants to touch them inappropriately while they slept.
Opening arguments got straight to the point, the prosecutors told the jury not to believe any suggestions that the victims were working as a “conspiracy”.
There was another witness to testify, she didn’t immediately report the abuse due to the fact that she was scared and embarrassed which isn’t uncommon for a case like this.
Molina has pleaded not guilty to all of the other charges. They’re claiming that the stories don’t “corroborate” with one another. He thinks that there is reasonable doubt involved.
I have a feeling this will not be a long trial. There’s too many witnesses against this man and evidence. However, with the right defense lawyer anything can happen.
