Comments Off on Trial of Miguel Angel Davila, 34, for Sexual Assault of Minor Girl in San Angelo Will Revolve Around Methamphetamine and Mother’s Lesbian Relationship

SAN ANGELO, TX — Miguel Angel Davila will stand trial a second time for continuously sexually abusing a minor girl in San Angelo from 2011 to 2014.  

The 34-year-old Davila’s first trial ended in a mistrial in May of 2015 when the jury couldn’t reach a unanimous decision.  According to court documents and pretrial testimony, Davila was re-indicted on one count of sexual assault of a child and one count of indecency with a child by sexual contact.  The alleged victim was 12 years old when the assaults began and continued until she was 15.

He was initially charged with continuous sexual assault of a child under 14.

Testimony in the first trial alleged Davila sexually assaulted the girl in parked vehicles, at his father’s business, at an apartment, and at his house.  Testimony indicates the minor girl continued to make bad decisions because she and her mother were smoking methamphetamine.

In the first trial, Davila’s defense attorney Laura Dowdy of Houston argued that the girl’s mother made the accusations of sexual abuse after the girl’s mother and Davila’s wife developed a romantic lesbian relationship. Prosecutors argued Davila’s wife left him in 2011 for another woman.

Davila has a new defense attorney for his retrial, Stephanie Goodman.  The trial is set to begin with jury selection Monday at 9 a.m. in the Tom Green County courthouse.
