HIDALGO COUNTY, TX (CBS 4) – Investigators have arrested a 35-year-old Mission man accused of molesting a 14-year-old girl.
On Jan. 6, police interviewed a 14-year-old girl, according to Mission Municipal Court records. The girl said Juan Carlos Maya, 35, of Mission touched her inappropriately and sent her a sexual text message.
CBS 4 News is withholding details about how Maya knew the girl to preserve her anonymity.
Investigators interviewed Maya, who said he couldn’t remember touching the girl, according to court records.
“Juan stated that he did not remember doing that but that he believed everything that Jane Doe said because he is a different person when he drinks,” according to court records, which refer to the girl as Jane Doe. “He stated that the incidents have been happening for about 3 years. Juan further stated that he probably did those things because he was used to sleeping with his wife and did those things to her.”
Maya is charged with indecency with a child, a second-degree felony.
A judge set bond at $100,000.
Maya remains at the Hidalgo County jail and couldn’t be reached for comment.
