A Racine teenager is accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl on several occasions in a Mount Pleasant home and bragging about it on at least one occasion to the girl’s mother.
Juan A. Alejos, 17, was charged in Racine County Circuit Court Thursday with one count of second-degree sexual assault of a child less than 16 years old. If convicted, he faces up to 25 years in prison and $100,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint, the girl’s mother recently contacted the Mount Pleasant Police Department, saying her daughter was out of control and seeing Alejos, even though she’s not allowed to because he’s abusive towards her. Officers interviewed the girl and she said her and Alejos had been having sex and her mother knew about it because she got her a birth control implant shot.
The woman told officers she did indeed know about the sex, but knew there was nothing she could do to stop her daughter. On one occasion the woman said she was sitting on her porch when Alejos walked up to her and bragged about having sex with the girl.
Alejos was interviewed by officers and he said he and the girl had sex four times. He will make his initial appearance in court Dec. 12.
