CORPUS CHRISTI - A 23-year-old Corpus Christi man is in jail tonight accused of molesting a five year old girl inside a discount store restroom.
Victor Orlando Sanchez was arrested on Tuesday, but appeared in court today. District Judge Jose Longoria set bond for Sanchez at half a million dollars.
According to court documents, Sanchez was working at a store on the 5800 block of Weber Road on November 27th when the alleged incident took place.
The alleged victim told nurses at Driscoll Children's Hospital that Sanchez took her to the back room and pulled her pants down. She says Sanchez told her he needed to make sure she hadn't stolen anything and began touching her private area. She added that Sanchez put his finger in her private parts.
Sanchez is in the Nueces County Jail facing charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child. If convicted, he could be sentenced to at least 25 years in prison.
