Stepfather Accused of Raping Minor (La Cronica, 11/28/12)
MEXICALI, BC - The stepfather of a girl, a 10 year-old resident of the Mexicali Valley, was arrested by members of the Municipal Police, for being involved in the crime of rape against a minor.
The girl told her teachers what her stepfather had supposedly done in previous days, so school officials in the rural area contacted the Municipal police.
This case was presented on Tuesday at 9:25 a.m. in the primary school of the Mexicali Valley. The minor arrived at the school and complained to her teachers about the stepfather, saying he had raped her.
The girl’s teachers put special emphasis on the complaint, since the minor is of different capacities. To address the case, the teachers reported the event to the Municipal police. http://www.lacronica.com/EdicionEnLinea/Notas/Noticias/28112012/644546.aspx
