HESPERIA – A 33-year-old Hesperia man was arrested and convicted earlier this month for the sexual abuse of teenage sisters.
Although the suspect is at this time incarcerated and will be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life authorities still believe that there may be additional victims. Jose Alfredo Ortiz-Hernandez made friends with the two teen sisters through social media, which eventually led to a meeting, Ortiz-Hernandez providing them with alcohol and/or drugs, and sexual acts.
Authorities said that Ortiz-Hernandez had sex with the 14 and 15-year-old girls multiple times in the county area of San Bernardino, Colton, and Hesperia. The investigation began in October 2018, when the Department of Children and Family Services made a report indicating that two teen sisters were being sexually abused by Ortiz-Hernandez. The girls spoke with detectives on November 6, 2018, leading to the arrest of Ortiz Hernandez the following day.
Ortiz-Hernandez was booked into the High Desert Detention Center for multiple sex crimes. Ortiz-Hernandez admitted to the charges against him and was sentenced to prison.
