September 22, 2018

A 30-year-old man was indicted by an Ector County grand jury Wednesday on charges of sexual abuse of a 14-year-old disabled girl.

Abram Noel Vigil was indicted on five counts of aggravated sexual assault of a disabled person, first-degree felonies, and a charge of indecency with a child by sexual contact, a second-degree felony. Vigil was identified as a family member of the girl in a probable cause affidavit.

The sexual assault was reported Aug. 2 by a mother of the victim’s friend, the affidavit stated. The document stated the sexual assault began in March and stopped the second week of July when the victim’s mother stopped allowing her daughter to visit Vigil’s residence. The affidavit also stated that Vigil and the 14-year-old girl would have sex three to five times a week.

The girl has been diagnosed with an intellectual disability and is said to have the mental capacity of a 9-year-old, the affidavit stated.

Vigil is still in custody of the Ector County Law Enforcement Center and he has six bonds totaling $180,000.
