Lufkin man who had video of child sex assault on Snapchat pleads guilty

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Lufkin man who was arrested in March 2017 in connection with allegations that he had a video on his Snapchat account of him sexually assaulting a 6-year-old girl has pleaded guilty.

Oscar Alamillo Solis, 18, was charged with two counts of third-degree possession of child pornography, one count of first-degree aggravated sexual assault of a child and one count of second-degree indecency with a child. He entered a guilty plea in Judge Paul White's courtroom on Wednesday.

White has ordered a pre-sentence investigation and a sentencing hearing will be held March 19, according to District Attorney Joe Martin.

According to the arrest affidavit, an investigator with the Attorney General's Office Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force contacted a detective with the Lufkin Police Department on March 1 and said he was investigating a possession of child pornography case in which the suspect appeared to live in Lufkin.

The investigator with the AG's Office was assigned the case by the Fairview Police Department on Feb. 28. A 15-year-old girl contacted the Fairview PD after she saw disturbing videos and images on Oscar Solis' Snapchat account, the affidavit stated.

The complainant told the Fairview PD that she had been communicating with Solis, and he gave her the log-in information to his Snapchat account and asked her to log in to "prevent the loss of streaks he had earned in a game" because the streaks are deleted once a user logs off, the affidavit stated.

According to the affidavit, the complainant logged into Solis' Snapchat account and found videos and photos of Solis sexually assaulting a young girl in his "memories" section.

The LPD detective compared the images from the Snapchat account to Solis' driver license photo and confirmed that he was the one using the Snapchat account, the affidavit. During the investigation, authorities also matched his cell phone number with the one used for the Snapchat account.

On March 2, the Lufkin PD detective went to Lufkin High School and interviewed Solis in the police department office there. During the interview, Solis allegedly admitted to sexually assaulting the 6-year-old girl. He also confessed to shooting photos and video of the assault, the affidavit stated.

Solis told authorities that the sexual assault occurred in December of 2016, the affidavit stated.
