TIJUANA, BC - Pablo Torres Monroy, 46, is already is in prison charged with the offense of incest. The victim is currently 15 years-old. The Attorney of Justice in Tijuana reported that State agents of the police Ministerial stopped him last weekend at the request of the tenth criminal court.

In principle, the public prosecutor of the sexual offense Agency requested the arrest of the accused for the crime of sexual abuse and rape, but Judge Fanny Martinez Reyes reclassified the crime to incest. According to investigations carried out by the Ministerial police, the abuse began when the victim was 14 years old. The victim said that she suffered from lack of attention because her mother took care of her younger brothers and felt she was wanted only by her father.

Pablo took advantage of the situation to tell his daughter that her mother did not want her, but he did. On one occasion, the child was in her room asleep, when he entered and assaulted her sexually, then said she did not do anything wrong because he loved her.

The daughter said nothing to her mother to avoid her dismay. This is common in such a case and why the abuse continued until January 2012, while no one in the family realized it was happening. When the victim told a friend, she learned it was a crime and then denounced him. She explained to the Public Prosecutor's Office that on one occasion, he also hit her, but as she began to scream, he left her alone.

Through corresponding medical and psychological tests, it was determined the girl presented with psychological affectation as a product of the facts described, explained the Attorney of Justice in a statement. But the tenth judge Fanny Martinez Reyes reclassified the crime and granted the arrest warrant for the crime of incest against Pablo Torres Monroy, who was detained at the prison of La Mesa http://www.el-mexicano.com.mx/informacion/noticias/1/22/policiaca/2012/11/06/627112/va-a-prision-por-incesto.aspx

Personally, I am getting tired of your reprinted articles being shoved down my throat everytime I peruse the community blogs. I'm not quite sure that you are aware of just what a blog is, but it certainly is not simply reprinting multiple articles that, for whatever reason, you deem important. Do you notice nobody ever comments? Do we need to stage an intervention on your behalf? Perhaps you need a hobby that mirrors your obsessive compulsive need to reprint other folks articles? I suggest that you read the articles ( to yourself) and then if you have an opinion about any particular one, you can then share your thoughts about it within the community. The alternative would be for you to contact The Reader and suggest to them that they add a section called " Community Spam". I think your "blog" would fit rather nicely there.
