The three judge panel made up of Marco Vinicio Lizano, Maribeth Mora and Blanca Gamboa gave credibility to the story of the victim, supported by the results of a paternity test.

For years,  starting when she was only 9 years old, the girl had been sexually molested by her stepfather, excalating leading to rape when she was 12 and began menstruating. According to court records the attacks occurred between 2004 and 2008.

The victim, whose identity has not been released to the press, denounced the nightmare two years ago when she became of age.

The court heard testimony that some of the attacks occurred in the family home and Rodriguez’s place of work, where he worked as a tourist guide.
