HOUMA, LA - On August 12, following a four-day trial, a Terrebone Parish jury found Juan Paz Zuniga, 43, guilty of raping three girls ages 6 and 7.
Two of Zuniga’s victims, both now 11-years-old, testified against him.
The rapes occurred between Jan. 1, 2017, and Aug. 19, 2018.
The Courier reported:
One of the girls said she was excited for her first day of school but was instead meeting with the case worker. In the video, she said Zuniga had touched her inappropriately on numerous occasions and raped her in a shed.
"'Come on, we are going to go for a ride,'" the girl said Zuniga told her. "I was so happy. ... But he lied."
The other 11-year-old was soft-spoken and rarely looked up during her testimony in court. When a video interview was shown from four years before, she never looked at the screen. In the video, she told of how Zuniga raped her once in the bathroom and then again the following day in the shed.
Zuniga, a Mexican national, was convicted of three counts of first-degree rape. He faces mandatory life imprisonment without the possibility of parole when he is sentenced on September 14.
