Sunland Park man accused of having sex with juvenile girl

Sunland Park - Sunland Park Police Monday arrested a 38-year-old man accused of having sex with a juvenile girl and recording it on his cell phone.

Luis Moreno faces five counts of criminal sexual penetration by force or coercion, court documents state.

Moreno and the juvenile girl allegedly admitted to having consensual sex multiple times over several years, the documents state.

The teenager told Sunland Park police they started having sex when she was only 12 years old. In the documents, Moreno's story contradicts hers. He told police they didn't have sex until she was 15 years old.

According to police, Moreno admitted he had multiple inappropriate pictures of the young girl on his cell phone. He also said he had sex with her the morning of his interview with police, the documents state.

The teenage girl told police she was attracted to Moreno. According to court documents, she said the two had sex at first once a month, and after several years, the two started having sex several times a week.

Court documents state the suspect's phone is undergoing forensic analysis because another young girl suspects him of recording her while she was in the shower. Moreno denied that allegation in his interview with police.

Additional charges could be filed against Moreno pending the results of the forensic analysis of his phone.
