Two people face felony trafficking charges after negotiating a price of $10,000 in exchange for a girl’s virginity, Frisco police say.
Frisco officers arrested Cirino Santiago Delacruz, 32, of Farmers Branch and Adriana Aguilar, 33, of Frisco late last week on suspicion of trafficking and indecency with a child sexual contact. Aguilar also faces a separate charge of promotion of prostitution of a person younger than 18.
Both remained in the Collin County Detention Center on Tuesday with immigration holds from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Delacruz’s attorney was not immediately available for comment. No attorney was listed for Aguilar.
The incident is believed to have happened in December. Police were notified April 23 after the girl told her parents, according to Frisco Police spokesman Benny Valdez. Valdez couldn’t give the girl’s age but said that Child Protective Services is now involved.
Investigators are still trying to determine whether this is an isolated incident, Valdez said.
The girl was taken to the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County for a forensic interview.
According to a probable cause affidavit, Aguilar and the girl knew each other. One day in December, Aguilar asked the girl to ride with her to Dallas to run an errand. They went to an apartment, where they met Delacruz. The girl told investigators she had seen him before at a restaurant but didn’t know him.
Aguilar told the girl that Delacruz offered to pay $10,000 to have sex with her and take her virginity.
The girl said she was physically forced into a bedroom. Delacruz kissed her, put his hand up her shirt and felt her bare breast while she tried to get him off of her, according to the affidavit. When he tried to take off her pants, the girl said she fought him and was allowed to leave the bedroom.
Aguilar became angry with the girl because she wouldn’t have sex with Delacruz, according to the affidavit. Aguilar told the girl not to tell anyone what happened. The girl told investigators she was fearful of both Aguilar and Delacruz.
Delacruz paid $100 for being able to touch the girl, according to the affidavit. Aguilar kept $50 for delivering the girl and offered the other half to the girl. The girl told investigators she didn’t want the money but eventually took it.
According to the affidavit, Aguilar “knowingly caused the juvenile victim to engage in sexual contact by placing the victim in the situation to be touched.”
