The Sheriff’s Office started investigating Sanchez after the victim came forward to a trusted adult describing the abuse. That adult then contacted the Sheriff’s office.
Sanchez is facing allegations of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, attempted indecent liberties with a child, criminal solicitation of a child, attempted rape and aggravated intimidation of a witness.
