Father who beat to death man molesting his 5-year-old daughter will not be charged

Posted by   + Show Post

SHINER, Texas (AP) - Authorities say a Texas father who beat to death a man who tried molesting his 5-year-old daughter will not be charged.

Officials said the Lavaca County grand jury met Tuesday and declined to return an indictment against the father in the death of 47-year-old Jesus Mora Flores.

The attack happened on the family's ranch between the farming towns of Shiner and Yoakum. Investigators said the 23-year-old father ran toward his daughter's screams, pulled Flores off his child and beat him with his hands.

Emergency crews found Flores' pants and underwear pulled down on his lifeless body when they responded to the 911 call. The girl was taken to a hospital and examined.

Authorities say forensic evidence and witness accounts corroborated the father's story that his daughter was being sexually molested

Lavaca County District Attorney Heather McMinn and Sheriff Micah Harmon called a news conference a 3:30 p.m. Tuesday to discuss the beating death homicide that took place on June 9 near Shiner.

The news conference was in the commissioners courtroom of the Lavaca County Courthouse, 109 N. LaGrange St., in Hallettsville.

 Ah, the Great State of Texas came through. I did not want that man charged, and I didn't see a ury convicting him either. Good, we didn't waste taxpayer money with bullshit.

 That is good news. I am not a fan of violence and killing but in this case,I am glad he beat the guy to death and that he won't be charged.

Glad this dad won't have to go through trial and wasting taxpayer money, but so terribly sad for that little girl.
