TARRANT COUNTY, Texas (WTVR) — A Tarrant County grand jury has indicted Geronimo Scott Aguilar in connection with the sexual assault of a second child in the late 1990s in Fort Worth, Texas.
The eight-count indictment was returned on Wednesday and involves a victim who is identified by the pseudonym April More.
The indictment states that the child at the time was younger than 14 years old and is not the spouse of the defendant.
Aguilar, 43, was indicted on two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child under 14, a first-degree felony that carries a maximum punishment of life in prison.
He was also indicted on three counts of sexual assault of a child under 17 and three counts of indecency with a child—all of which are second-degree felonies punishable by a maximum of 20 years in prison.
The indictment alleges that the sexual abuse occurred in 1996 and 1997.
Aguilar is now facing trial on two separate cases involving two different victims. In September, he was indicted in connection with the sexual assault of another younger child in Fort Worth in 1996 and 1997.
Aguilar remains free on bond and a trial date has not been set. Since grand jury proceedings are secret under the law, the District Attorney for Tarrant, Texas is prohibited from commenting further.
