Milwaukee, WI - On Wednesday, the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office is expected to file additional child molestation charges against Alfredo García, 53, who was charged with two felony counts for first-degree sexual assault of a child under 13 and repeated sexual of a child. The DA's office has an ongoing investigation in the García case and believes additional victims might have been molested. García is accused of occasionally molesting his daughter since she was seven for almost eight years, according to the criminal complaint.
Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) has learned of other cases that involved adults accused of molesting children in Milwaukee County alone. One of those cases involved Rogelio Lee García, 60, who was charged in November 2014 with two felony counts for second-degree child sexual assault/sexual contact with a child and repeated sexual assault of a child. Rogelio Lee is held on a cash bond of $50,000.
In December 2014, César R. Romero-Zavala, 31, was convicted for one felony count of repeated sexual assault of the same child and was sentenced to 18 years in prison, but is eligible for release after serving 12 years in prison with 6 years of probation.
In March of 2013, Armando Briseño-Alonso, 39, was charged with repeated sexual assault of a child and two counts of child enticement, including sexual contact or intercourse with a child. Briseño-Alonso is accused of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old boy when he was in third grade at the Rogers Street Academy located in the 2300 block of W. Rogers Street.
Briseño-Alonso was freed on a cash bail of $10,000, but forfeited the bond when he failed to appear in court on September of 2013. Briseño-Alonso allegedly fled to Mexico to avoid prosecution. A bench warrant was issued for Briseño-Alonso.
On September 9, 2013 two additional felony counts were filed against Briseño-Alonso, one felony count for child sexexploitation (video, record) and a second count for possession of child pornography, according to court records.
These are only a few cases that have been made public and the community, parents and relatives are encouraged to report any alleged child sex molestation to authorities in order to protect and bring justice for the children that were allegedly molested at no fault of their own.
HNNUSA continues to inform the community at large about alleged sexual predators that target children and sometimes even their own for sexual gratification. No child should suffer from sexual abuse and molestation in our communities, only by making the public aware of the growing sexual molestation issue in our community can we help to bring those responsible to justice.
