Illegal Alien Sexually Assaults 14-Year-Old Girl in North Augusta


An illegal alien is being held for Immigration officials after his arrest for allegedly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl in North Augusta, authorities said.

Jose Alvarez Lopez, 26, of Hyacinth Way, North Augusta, was charged Monday with two counts of criminal sexual conduct with a minor, according to jail records.

According to warrants, Lopez had sexual intercourse with the girl “with the intent of arousing, appealing to, or gratifying the lust, passions or sexual desires of himself or the victim,” the warrant says.

Authorities would not say where the sex act occurred or how the suspect came into contact with the victim. The case remains under investigation, sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Shunn said.

Lopez remained in the Aiken County Detention Center on Tuesday, where he had a hold for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials.

  1. Why lie in the title and say this is sexual assault? He was charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor which indicates that the encounter was concensual. Is it because you need that “Illegal Alien Sexually Assaults 14 Yr Old” headline to get clicks? Deplorable.
