Ricardo Carmona faces charges of sex with a minor

November 6, 20080


A 37-year-old El Verano man is being held without bail at the Sonoma County Jail after being charged with having sex with a minor.

On Oct. 22, the mother of the 14-year-old victim went to the Sonoma Police Department because she was worried about the relationship between her daughter and the man, who is a family friend. The mother had checked her daughter's cell phone and found 90 text messages and 15 phone calls from the man. A Sonoma police sergeant talked with the girl and she admitted there was an inappropriate relationship with the man.

The matter was turned over to the Sonoma County Sheriff's Department Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Unit, and after more investigation, officers arrested Ricardo Mondragon Carmona, 37, of El Verano. Carmona was charged with two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse, two counts of oral copulation with a minor and one count of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 15. Carmona is being held without bail.
