Texas deputy charged with sexual assault of undocumented immigrant's child

Jose Nunez 47

A 47-year-old deputy with the Bexar County Sheriff's Office was arrested early Sunday (June 17) after a woman told investigators he had been sexually assaulting her 4-year-old daughter, according to KSAT-TV, an ABC affiliate in San Antonio.

The Bexar sheriff called the case "heartbreaking, disturbing, disgusting and infuriating all at the same time".

Nunez, 47, is accused of touching the girl's genital area, causing pain and minor injury, over a period of at least several months and possibly years, according to officials.

He said investigators are working with the mother to complete paperwork in a way that ensures she has a protected status "pending the outcome of this case".

Mr Nunez has been charged with super aggravated sexual assault, a charge applied when the victim is under six years old. If found guilty, he could face a minimum of 25 years behind bars.

Salazar declined to comment on the girl's residency status.

TRUMP STRIKES BACK: The President Threatens China with $200 BILLION in Tariffs
Instead of unilateral tariffs , the group called on Trump to work with allies to put coordinated pressure on China. He also reportedly told Apple CEO Tim Cook that he won't impose tariffs on Apple iPhones assembled in China .

Sheriff Javier Salazar said in a press conference the mother of the young victim came forward to a local fire station after the girl cried out for help.

Authorities say the child outcried to her mother saying that Nunez touched and hurt her. "Certainly what was appealing was the vulnerability of that community because they are less apt to report things".

"The little girl now is safe and we're continuing to process the case", Salazar said. "That's always a concern in the undocumented community", he said.

Salazar encourages undocumented people to report crimes against them and their families.

The arrest of the undocumented has come under scrutiny after a growing number of parents and their children are being separated at the border as part of the Trump administration's illegal immigration enforcement strategy.

Nunez has been placed on administrative leave while the sheriff's office conducts an internal investigation.
