Alleged Child Rapist In Court

May 8, 2006, 5:30 PM by Lou Raguse

Alleged Child Rapist In Court
A five-year-old boy helped put an end to suspected sexual abuse within a Sioux Falls home.

Forty-year-old Francisco Gaspar is in jail charged with 1st-degree rape. He's accused with having sex with a seven-year-old girl several times until her little brother said something to their dad.

Francisco Gaspar, also goes by Raul Hernandez and Raul Fernandez. According to court papers he is an illegal immigrant working in Sioux Falls using another man's immigration papers.

Monday he was in court accused of violating a family that took him into their home.

When confronted, the seven-year old victim told her mother Francisco Gaspar had sex with her every day for the past week. But investigators are looking into whether the abuse has been going on longer than that. Court papers say it all happened inside the girl's bedroom and a bathroom in her home.

“There is a family relationship,” says police information officer Loren McManus. “That's the best I can tell you.”

Gaspar lived with the family for two years, and according to court papers, last week the victim's five-year-old brother told their dad he saw Gaspar put his hand on the girl's rear end. The father confronted Gaspar and kicked him out of the house.

And on friday when she was examined and interviewed at a hospital, the seven-year-old told investigators her story, which put Francisco Gaspar in jail.

Gaspar is being held in jail on a $50,000 cash bond. If he could post it, he would not be allowed near the victim.
