Although he requested the presence of a translator in court, Mauricio Hernández understood when the judge told him in English that he could not approach his alleged victims, a 15-year-old girl and a 16-year-old girl.
According to the police, Heránandez, 25, used the social network Instagram to contact the minors. And now he faces 9 charges, including human trafficking of minors.
Mike Vega, spokesman for the Miami police, said: “He makes an appointment with them. They see each other in a hotel or in a park and then he offers them money to have sex with him”.
One of these meetings is said to have taken place in José Martí Park in Little Havana. It was probably the third time he had met this minor, whose identity remains protected.
A girl or boy under 18 cannot consent to have sex with an adult.
According to the report, on at least two occasions, I paid for an Uber to transport the minor from a point near her school to a motel.
Another 13-year-old victim was allegedly offered an e-cigarette as she tried to obtain information about other minors.
We pretended to be the daughter of an Instagram controlled by us and we accepted. But when he arrived, the miner was not there, but us, to stop him.
Mauricio Hernández will have to remain in the county jail for the time being, without the right to bail.
