Accused Child Molester on Trial Years Later


A man accused of sexually abusing multiple children is now on trial. Tomas Ramirez is on trial for continuously molesting a little girl in the 1990's.

He faces three counts of aggravated sexual assault and two counts of indecency with a child. Ramirez is also accused of sexually abusing six other children at the Kate Ross Apartments in Waco.

A McLennan County Detective was called to testify today. He told jurors that when the victim came to him she was believable and had no motive to make up the allegations.

The victim didn't come forward until 2010; that's when detectives started their investigation. Ramirez then fled out of state but was later arrested by US Marshals in Birmingham, Alabama. He was put behind bars but was released on $100,000 bail.

 The trial will resume in the 19th District Court tomorrow morning.
