DALLAS (AP) – A man is facing sex crime charges after police caught him in a stolen pickup truck with a 16-year-old girl he had sex with and forced into prostitution.
The Dallas Morning News reports (http://bit.ly/1OpmAfY ) that 24-year-old Joe Vasquero Torres has been charged with sexual assault of a child, sex trafficking of a child, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, evading arrest and possession of less than a gram of methamphetamine.
Court documents say officers saw Torres and the girl get into a pickup truck outside a northeastern Dallas pawn shop Tuesday.
Torres admitted to having sex with the girl, who says Torres once dropped her off at a house to have sex for money.
Torres remained in the Dallas County jail Friday with a bail of more than $52,000. Jail records don’t list an attorney.
