Alleged victim testifies in child sexual assault trial

Amid tears an alleged victim describes how she was molested more than 15 years ago.

36 year old Tomas Ramirez is charged with multiple counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and indecency of a child.  Indictments include seven different children between the ages of seven and 12. 

However, those assaults Ramirez is accused of happened between 1995 and 2000, and the first alleged victim did not come forward until 2010.  Ramirez was arrested in 2011. 

That first alleged victim who came forward took the stand in the second day of the trial Wednesday.  The woman, now in her 20's, described five separate times when Ramirez allegedly touched her sexually.  She said she was between the ages of seven and 12 at the time.  The woman also accused Ramirez of assaulting her on her eight birthday.

"I felt trapped, like I couldn't do anything about it," the alleged victim said. 

The state also called on another woman listed in a separate indictment who was allegedly assaulted by Ramirez when she was 10.  However, that woman did not talk about herself being molested.  That's because the state is trying to prove charges on each indictment, one at a time. 

Other women also took the stand saying the first alleged victim first told them about the assaults in 2005.  The defense questioned the victim as to why it took her so long to come forward.

The state will call on its next witness when the trial resumes Thursday morning at 8.
