Family Dollar Employee Indicted for Sex Assault of Child

CORPUS CHRISTI - The Family Dollar store employee accused of sexually assaulting a girl in the store last month is being held on one million dollars in bond.

Today, a grand jury indicted 23-year-old Victor Orlando Sanchez on two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

According to court documents, the 5-year old victim told a nurse at Driscoll Children's Hospital that an employee at the store took her to the back room, pulled her pants down, and touched her private area.

She says Sanchez claimed he needed to make sure she wasn't stealing anything.

Cops arrested Sanchez last week. Due to the victim's age, each count of aggravated sexual assault of a child in this case carries a minimum 25-year prison sentence if convicted.
