Arrest of Parents for Child Molestation

Riverside, Ca-  On May 23, Riverside Police were contacted by a 13 year old female juvenile concerning her allegations of being molested by her stepfather. The subsequent investigation revealed her stepfather had impregnated the victim. 

In April of 2002, the victim’s mother learned of the pregnancy.  The victim’s mother confirmed her daughter’s physical condition by administering a “home pregnancy test.”  The mother then gave the victim extremely high doses of aspirin and lemon juice in an attempt to abort the victim’s pregnancy.

As a result of the criminal investigation, both parents were placed under arrest on July 11, 2002 for the following charges:
