Jeffrey Cruz was found guilty of two counts of Second Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct for inappropriate sexual contact with the 8-year-old victim. He was acquitted of the remaining charges.

Guam – Four children, all under the age of 13, accused a man known to them of sexual assault, prompting a slew of felony charges disclosed by the Judiciary today.

Jeffrey Guerrero Cruz’s victims, according to court documents are three girls ages 12, 11, and 8 as well as a 7-year-old boy.  All of the victims are related to Cruz.

Court documents allege Cruz inappropriately touched the 11-year-old girl on at least 10 different occasions. The victim told police that Cruz would bounce her on his lap and rub her private parts with his hand.

Police claim Cruz performed a similar act with the second victim, a 12-year-old girl. According to court documents, Cruz began tickling her, and as she was lying down on her stomach, he squeezed her buttocks and moved his hand to her inner thigh and private area.

The third victim, an 8-year-old girl, told police that Cruz touched her private area in two separate incidents, one of which he also made her touch his penis.  The last victim, a 7 year old boy, allegedly told police that Cruz touched his genitals.

Cruz was charged with seven counts of second degree criminal sexual conduct.  He was booked and confined.
