TUCSON - A Honduras man has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Tucson on three counts of abusive sexual contact that occurred while he was living on the Gila River Indian Nation near Phoenix.
The indictment against 43-year-old Hernan Ramirez-Orteja alleges he fondled the adult victim on three occasions
without her consent. Ramirez-Orteja is already in federal custody on a June 29, 2011 indictment involving a separate victim. That indictment alleges that Ramirez-Orteja sexually assaulted a minor who is a member of the Tohono O'Odham Nation near Tucson.
A conviction for abusive sexual contact carries a maximum penalty of up to 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine or both.
