Edy Lopez, 34, is in custody and facing two counts of sexual battery following a Child Protection Team investigation.
According to the report, Lopez’s victim, between the ages of 12 and 17, told detectives that Lopez has been sexually bettering her for over a year. She told officers that he would crawl into bed with her at night while she was sleeping or occasionally drug her with Nyquil.
Officers made contact with Lopez, who was taken into custody immediately following his interview.
The charge also states that Lopez is either a family member of a guardian of the victim.
No bond was set for Lopez and his court date is Jan 30.
