MARYLAND – An illegal immigrant allegedly raped a 13-year-old non-verbal girl at her home while he was supposed to be baby sitting her.
Reynaldo Mora, 41, was arrested and charged with sex abuse of a minor and two counts of second-degree rape on April 19 in Montgomery County, Maryland, after allegedly impregnating the young girl. The girl could only communicate through hand motions and writing, due to her condition, Fox News reported.
The victim, who has the “intellect of a first grader,” according to police, was reportedly forced into a bedroom in the Maryland home and raped by Mora.
