A man in Texas was arrested for child molestation after a 9-year old girl wrote a letter to Santa asking for it to stop.
The 9-year-old’s plea to Santa, written as a school assignment, launched the investigation and led to the first charge of continuous sexual abuse last week. On Tuesday, Cantu was accused of abusing the girl’s older sister, who was also mentioned in the letter. Investigators have refused to share the letter to Santa, saying it is evidence in an ongoing investigation. But the charging affidavit described it as “a wish list to Santa” asking that the girl’s relative stop touching her and her sister. Pharr Police spokesman Lt. Guadalupe Salinas said the girls’ mother had been unaware of any abuse but that the relative had moved out of the home after an earlier falling out.
The kid’s teacher had read the letter and called a school counselor, who brought in the cops.
