PIPESTONE — A Pipestone man is charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct, coercion of a victim under age 18.
The charges stem from a March 23 report of possible criminal sexual conduct to the Pipestone County Sheriff’s office. Law enforcement arrived on the scene and spoke with a teenage victim.
According to the complaint filed in Pipestone County, the victim received a call from Jesus Jimenez-Sanchez, 30, inviting the individual to come over because he had something he wanted to say.
The victim went to Jimenez-Sanchez’s trailer, where he reportedly locked the door behind the victim before offering the victim a drink. The victim declined and noted in the report that Jimenez-Sanchez was drunk.
Jimenez-Sanchez then reportedly grabbed the victim’s arms and forcing the individual into his bedroom. According to the complaint, Jimenez-Sanchez climbed on top of the victim on the bed, despite the victim saying no. Jimenez-Sanchez reportedly removed the victim’s clothes before sexually assaulting the victim.
The victim attempted to escape the situation, but was unable because Jimenez-Sanchez was stronger and physically held the victim down. The victim reportedly told Jimenez-Sanchez that if he didn’t stop, everyone would be told about what happened. Jimenez-Sanchez reportedly let the victim go and said not to tell anyone.
Jimenez-Sanchez was detained in Pipestone County, where his bail was set at $10,000 with conditions and $20,000 without. His initial court appearance is scheduled for April 4.
If convicted, Jimenez-Sanchez faces a maximum sentence of 15 years imprisonment, a fine of $3,000, or both.
