Naples, FL (May 27, 2019) – Police reported that a man from Naples was arrested on Saturday for having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old girl after her father discovered the relationship.
The suspect has since been identified as 22-year-old Francisco Gutierrezcuellar. He is now facing three counts of Lewd Lascivious Battery Sex Act on a person 12-15 years of age.
The victim’s father found out about the relationship after he discovered that his daughter had looked up various Internet searches including “pregnancy symptoms” and “can a 13 date a 19” among many others. Her father then confronted her, when the teenager admitted that she had been having a sexual relationship with Gutierrezceullar and that she believed she was pregnant.
A deputy caught the suspect on his way home from work. The suspect made a confession in a recorded confession, which is when the deputy said that it is illegal for a 22-year-old to have a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old.
He has since been transported to the Naples Jail Center.
