Two people accused of child sex crimes were arraigned in court this morning.

Those accused were Eva Estrada, 49, and Alfonso Tovar, 55. They appeared before Judge Martha Huerta in the 28th District Court.

Estrada is facing three counts of inducing and or authorizing sexual performance of a child. Tovar is facing three counts of sexual assault of a child and one count of indecency with a child.

Very few details are being released in this case because of the age of the alleged victim.

According to court documents, Tovar is accused of sexually assaulting a child while Estrada touched the child’s breast.

Both were arrested by U.S. Marshals on Aug. 20 at a home on Espinosa Street.

Estrada and Tovar pleaded not guilty to the charges filed against them.

Their trial date will be set later today.
