(Harris County, TX) — Harris County Sheriff’s Office Child Abuse Unit investigators have charged a 52-year-old man with one count of the continuous sexual abuse of a child.
Investigators say that Ezequiel Garza, the step-father of the 17-year-old female victim, had been sexually abusing the female since she was 6 years old at their residence in north Harris County.
She made an outcry statement to a family member, and an initial investigation was conducted.
Child Abuse Unit personnel interviewed Garza, where he admitted he had been touching her inappropriately for a number of years. Investigators presented their finding to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, and they accepted the charge on Garza.
