School essay leads to conviction of child molester
A man is convicted of sexually abusing a young girl after she writes about it in a school essay.
According to reports 36-year-old Jesus Murillo admitted to sexually assaulting the female relative from the time she was seven to the time she was twelve years old.
In the girl's statement she says the abuse began when Murillo and his wife would take care of her.
For years the child kept the secret for fear of disrupting her family.
Until one day she wrote about the incidents in a high school essay...
According to the prosecutor this is an example of the important role teachers play in the lives of young people.
Murillo was sentenced today to twenty years in prison.
