NS. CLOUD – An Eden Valley man is charged with sexually molesting three young girls for several years.
Forty-two years old Casimiro Sosa Saavedra is charged in three cases of first-degree criminal sexual behavior involving victims under the age of 16, which over time involved multiple acts.
According to the criminal complaint, the girls, ages 12, 10 and 7, were taken to St. Cloud Hospital for sexual assault investigation on Tuesday. The mother believed that Sosa Saavedra had abused her.
Court records show the two older girls tested positive for a sexually transmitted disease, and all three narrated events when Sosa Saavedra performed various sexual acts on them when they were only seven years old.
The oldest girl said the abuse started with her in 2015 and took place in two separate homes, one in Waite Park and one in Eden Valley.
Sosa Saavedra is being held in Stearns County Jail awaiting his first court appearance.
