Key Largo – A 19 year old Key Largo man has been arrested for soliciting sex with a 14 year old girl on Facebook, and subsequently having sexual relations with her.
Major Crimes Detective Daniel Mehler arrested Jorge Bravo-Machuca Monday, charging him with lewd and lascivious acts on a minor and using a computer to solicit a minor.
Detective Mehler began investigating the case in June of 2011 when the victim’s father discovered Bravo was sending his daughter lewd communications on her Facebook account. He printed out the conversations, providing them to the detective. Det. Mehler questioned the victim, who admitted “dating” Bravo and admitted the two planned to have sexual relations together.
In November of 2011, the father reported his daughter had snuck out after attending a Homecoming Dance; at that point, she admitted to having sex with Bravo multiple times, both after the dance and at other times. She said Bravo told her he was 17 years old.
A warrant was obtained for Bravo’s arrest. He is currently in jail. His bond is set at $25,000.00.
