The sexual abuse was discovered when the girl went to the CCSS clinic because she needed medical attention. At that time, the doctor suspected that he was a victim of sexual abuse.

The girl’s 45-year-old father was arrested on July 4 last year, held in preventive detention until April 24 last, when he accepted the charges without a trial.
