The prosecution told the court that Juan L. Cerda was at the Willow Creek Apartments in Columbus as a prospective renter, and an employee was showing him a model apartment. Once inside the apartment, we are told that Cerda picked up the victim, pinned her up against a wall and sexually assaulted her. After the attack, they say the victim escaped and quickly called police.

They continued to say that during the initial interview with police, Cerda denied the accusations. In a later interview, however, he admitted that he may have inappropriately touched her.

During this time, Cerda was facing the judge, shaking his head in disbelief.

From the hearing today.

If he confessed whats the problem?
If a soldier has had to much to drink or gets in a scuffle out in town the police might give them a slap on the wrist and send them back to the base but this is totally different.
He will have his trial and he is innocent until, but he did confess didn't he?

God will forgive Juan L. Cerda for his sin if he asks but our laws require justice.
It is admirable he is serving our country but that does not excuse any crimes he may have committed.
The DA in Columbus looked at the evidence and feel their is sufficient evidence to prosecute, he was not allowed any bail so usually that means the evidence is overwhelming he is guilty or he is a flight risk, since he is a soldier I doubt he is a flight risk.

You do remember he admitted to "inappropriate touching", this will go to court and he will receive a fair trial and justice will be served!
God Bless America!

If anyone is related to him or knows who his attorney is PLEASE look me up on Facebook and message me its SUPER IMPORTANT https://www.facebook.com/tina.burkhart.7 Also If you DONT know him DONT judge him. I know him VERY WELL from his PREVIOUS post before Benning! I find it very doubtful he raped her. and yes he may have ADMITTED that he MAY HAVE touched her INAPPROPRIATELY but if you knew him you would know that he probably placed his hand on the small of her back and to a lot of girls that's WRONG to him that's being a gentlemen. Hes a charmer and can have any girl eating out of the Palm of his hand in just a few days he DONT have to rape women! DO NOT JUDGE HIM IF YOU DO NOT KNOW HIM!!!
