Texas father who killed daughter’s molester will not be charged with crime
The Texas father we told you about last week that beat a man to death after catching him molesting his 4-year-old daughter will not face charges according Reuters.
The 23-year-old father whose identity has been withheld to protect his daughter, was alerted by a witness to the abduction of his daughter by ranch hand Jesus Mora Flores.
Flores carried the girl to an area near the family’s horse barn, where he began sexually assaulting her. Following his daughter’s screams, the father tracked Flores down and began striking him in the head and neck until he collapsed and later died.
Under the law in the state of Texas deadly force is justified in order to stop and aggravated sexual assault or a sexual assault,” said Lavaca County District Attorney Heather McMinn. The jury concurred, and declined to indict the man.
Following the incident, nearby residents and Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon expressed support for the man’s right to defend his daughter. “He acted in defense of his third person,” Harmon said.
