LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A 19-year-old Lufkin man accepted a plea bargain deal of five years deferred adjudicated Friday morning for molesting a 12-year-old girl back in 2012.

Rudolfo Antonio Jasso appeared in Judge Gerald Goodwin's courtroom Friday morning. As part of the plea bargain deal, he pleaded guilty to a felony charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Deferred adjudication is basically the same thing as probation. If Jasso stays out of trouble with the law for the five-year period, the charge will be dropped from his criminal record.

According to a previous East Texas News story, Angelina County Sheriff's Office deputies started looking into the case after a then-12-year-old girl told investigators that Jasso molested her at a house. The girl said he touched her inappropriately in one room, and he tried to molest her again in another room after she got away from him.

The girl said Jasso asked her not to tell anyone what he had done.

Deputies interviewed Jasso on July 9, 2012 and say he admitted to touching and kissing the girl, though he said it was not against her will. He did admit that he knew her age and knew it was against the law to have any sexual relations with her.
