SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – On November 17, 2022, a federal grand jury returned an Indictment charging Ramón Rodríguez González with sexual exploitation of a minor. The arrest follows an investigation by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) with the assistance of the, United States Postal Service Office of the Inspector General (USPS-OIG) and the Puerto Rico Police Bureau (PRPB).
According to court documents, Rodríguez González, 43, of Caguas, in or about April 2021 through June 24, 2022, did knowingly attempt to employ, use, persuade, induce, and coerce a female minor while she was 15 and 16 years old to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction of such conduct.
“The sexual exploitation of minors is a horrific crime that can negatively affect victims for their entire lives,” said U.S. Attorney Muldrow. “The U.S. Attorney’s Office, and our law enforcement partners, are committed to aggressively investigate and prosecute these crimes.”
“The Puerto Rico Crimes Against Children Task Force mission is to protect our minors, we will remain vigilant and will arrest those who attempt to exploit our children,” said Rebecca C.
