By Aaron Humes: An eight-year-old female minor has accused a man, 21-year-old Martin Arteaga, of inappropriately touching her on two separate occasions.
Arteaga appeared in court Wednesday charged with two counts of sexual assault of a minor. He pleaded not guilty before Magistrate Stephanie Gillett but was denied bail after the prosecution asked the court to consider the age of the victim and that it was possible he would further interfere with the victim if granted bail.
Bail was denied and Arteaga was remanded until next February 1 unless he considers going to the Supreme Court for bail.
