According to Santa Fe Police, Eduardo Sandoval said he didn’t know the girl he was having sex with was only 12.
That doesn’t change the fact that she was and Sandoval was charged Monday afternoon with criminal sexual penetration of a minor.
He is being held in the Santa Fe County jail without bond pending his arraignment on the charge.
Santa Fe Police sent out a press release Monday afternoon and it indicates the girl’s parents suspected she was seeing an older boy. When she still wasn’t home early Sunday from going out on Saturday, the parents called police.
I’ll update more details about how police found him, the arrest and any other details when I learn more from police (they haven’t said much about their case yet, despite sending out a press release to all the media).
