Duncan man held in molestation
A 52-year-old Duncan man sought for a charge of lewdly touching a barely teenaged girl over a couple of years was arrested Tuesday and remains in jail in lieu of $250,000 bond.
Isabel Garcia made his initial appearance Wednesday in Stephens County District Court where he was charged with a felony count of lewd or indecent acts to a child under 16, court records indicate. He faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
Duncan police picked Garcia up Tuesday. He had been sought since Feb. 20 when an arrest warrant was issued.
Garcia is accused of lasciviously touching the 13-year-old daughter of a family friend repeatedly between 2010-2012, according to the court affidavit. Police began investigating after the girl and her mother made a report in March 2012. The girl has disclosed in counseling sessions that she had been molested by Garcia over the prior two years, both at her home and at his, the affidavit states. She said he'd touched her in her private area and her breast more than one time "skin on skin." She made an anatomical drawing to describe where he'd touched her and his penis, the document states.
