On Monday, Fifth District Magistrate court in Jerome County arraigned Juan Luis Torres-Juarez, 36, of Twin Falls, on three felony child enticement charges and three felony lewd conduct with a minor charges.
According to court documents, police found multiple sexually explicit messages exchanged between the then 13 to 14-year-old girl and Torres-Juarez from July to December 2016.
During an interview Friday with a Jerome County Sheriff’s Deputy, Torres-Juarez admitted to texting the girl sometimes from someone else’s phone and having intercourse at least three times with the victim in the Eden area.
