Doña Ana County Sheriff’s deputies arrested an East Mesa man after a teenage girl accused him of sexually assaulting her several times over the course of four years.

Jesus Munoz-Martinez, 47, has been charged with two first-degree felony counts of criminal sexual penetration of a minor, seven counts of criminal sexual contact of a minor, and two counts of third-degree criminal sexual contact or a minor.
