Man charged with repeated rape, sex abuse of Delaware girl
WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — A man has been arrested and charged with raping a Delaware child for years.
The Wilmington News Journal reported Monday that 41-year-old Evaristo Martinez was indicted last week on about 45 charges including sexual abuse and rape. Court records say Martinez admitted to abusing the girl and filming some of the attacks. They say the now-17-year-old girl was about 11 years old when the abuse started.
Records say Martinez would sometimes apologize during the attacks and tell the girl he was sick and “could not keep his hands off of her.” They say the girl kept silent about the attacks because she was afraid of her family losing financial and emotional support.
It’s unclear if Martinez has a lawyer. He’s set to appear in court next month.
