Lionel Quiroz Charged After Minor Alleges Sexual Assault

Lionel Quiroz

A nine year old child has made a report of sexual assault allegedly committed by a man she knows well.  The incident occurred in the Lord’s Bank area, Ladyville, when the child was in the company of a younger sibling. She had been sent to buy at a nearby grocery store on November eighth, 2014 and was allegedly assaulted by twenty-year old Lionel Quiroz. He appeared this afternoon before Magistrate Herbert Panton and pleaded not guilty to the charge of Sexual Assault. Since there was no objection, Magistrate Panton offered him bail in the sum of one thousand five hundred dollars which he met. Allegations made by the nine year old primary school child are that the accused who she knows as “Nello” touched her inappropriately after she declined his advances to have sex with him. Quiroz is due back in court on February fifth, 2015.
