Cameron County jail employee arrested on child sex abuse allegations

November 14, 2018

The Texas Department of Public Safety arrested a Carrizales-Rucker Detention Center employee on Nov. 9 and charged the man with continuous sexual abuse of a child.

Sheriff Omar Lucio confirmed the arrest of Mark Anthony Trevino and said the employee has been placed on administrative leave with pay, though that status could change.

DPS Spokesman Lt. Johnny Hernandez said the arrest was made in a joint investigation with the Brownsville Police Department and referred media inquiries to the BPD.

As of early Tuesday afternoon, Trevino was still being held at the county jail in lieu of a $100,000 bond.

Court records associate a Los Fresnos address with Trevino and indicate that Magistrate Judge Fabian Limas Jr. issued an emergency protective order in the case.
