Hernandez faces numerous charges
Placeholder Image
Grand jurors covered the gamut against a man charged with rape, indicting him not only on the rape charge but also lesser included offenses of statutory rape and sexual battery by an authority figure.The defendant, Alenjandro Hernandez, was indicted on the three different counts which span a large area in potential sentences. The lowest possible count, that of statutory rape, charges he had illegal, but consensual, sexual contact with a person under 18 and could face one to two years in prison. The next charge of sexual battery by an authority figure carries three to six years in prison and suggests he used his position or power over the girl to have sexual relations.
