Ruben Gallegos told detectives that he was playing around with a friend's 13-year-old daughter. They chased each other around the apartment, and the girl greeted him by jumping on his back. But when Gallegos and the girl were lying on the floor watching TV, the hangout took a creepy turn.
Gallegos admitted that he knew the girl was 13, but he tried to
have oral sex with her anyway. He said it lasted 30 seconds with him closing his eyes and trying to pretend the girl was someone else. But
he said that when he opened his eyes, reality hit and he stopped. The girl was
scared, so he left.
About 10 minutes later, the
girl's mother, brother and brother's girlfriend showed up at his apartment
to confront him. He apologized, getting on his
knees and begging for forgiveness.
The girl told police that around 11:50 a.m. on February 20, Gallegos
came to her apartment, and they played around. The girl told police that
she was laying ont the floor of the apartment when Gallegos pulled down
her pajama bottoms and started licking her private area. He also began
foldling her breasts and nipples.
The charges against Gallegos include first-degree statutory sodomy,
first-degree child molestation and deviate sexual assault.
