LAREDO, TEXAS (KGNS) - The District Attorney’s Office secured a guilty plea in its case against Luis De La Rosa.
On June 20, 2012, Luis De La Rosa, 41, initiated a chatting conversation with an undercover investigator who was posing as “Mari,” a 14-year-old female.
During the conversation De La Rosa spoke in a sexual manner and said he would kiss her, touch her and be gentle while having sex with her when he went over to her house. Knowing that she was a minor, De La Rosa arrived to “Mari’s” apartment with a box of condoms in his pocket.
De La Rosa was arrested in an apartment complex on the 6000 block of Bartlett and charged with online solicitation of a minor. He was subsequently indicted by a Webb County Grand Jury for one count of online solicitation of a minor involving “luring” as outlined by the Texas Penal Code Section 33.021(c), a second degree felony.
De La Rosa was sentenced before the 49th District Court Judge Joe Lopez to five years to serve probated for a period of five years. De La Rosa will register as a sex offender for a period of 10 years after completing the five year probationary period.
Assistant District Attorney's Adam Muffett was the prosecutor for the State.
