Lionel Quiroz Gets Two Years for Sexual Assault of Minor

Lionel Quiroz

Tonight, a single father of two children is beginning a two-year jail term imposed upon him by Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser for the offense of sexual assault for touching a nine year old little girl inappropriately.  The child testified in court that on November eight, 2014, Lionel Quiroz walked up to her as she was heading home; he first hugged her and then touched her inappropriately on her rear.  Quiroz denied the accusation saying he was in the village of Biscayne at the time, but the Senior Magistrate found him guilty after hearing vivid testimony of how the incident occurred.   The mitigating factor why Quiroz was not imposed the maximum time of three years was because he took his two children to the court. While they were kept outside the courtroom, he claimed he is their sole provider since their mother walked out on him.
