Deb your an idiot an you need to support children. You're too quick to blame others so you must stop that and treat others with respect. Joe lopez had his appeal and he was denied because he is a child molester and he will register as one, thanks be to the loard Jesus and thank the lord for register him.

The only one that was there was TINA LOPEZ that went to mexico and left a child with a molester because she knew he raped a child in san antonio. Is this you TIna finally speaking out. You have been so stupid by not speaking out because you should have in the begining. Jury made no mistakes and you know it. Your idiot husband F everything up for you this was Monicas paybacks and joe did exactly like life will pay you back. Hoe lopez was a perv and he proved it when he raped his family.

How long was it before they checked the shorts? Did they save them, don't they wash cloth? Where was his wife when this happened. How long did they wait before they said something about it. Was it the same day or what?? Too many unanswered ?????. Looks like it was a setup. You think he would be that dumb to leave evidence. I don't think so. Somebody got pissed off at him, probably money!!!!!!! He would have taken the deal if he had been guilty.

You can keep asking the same questions that everyone had but he will be in jail for raping another child. the first one did not land him in jail because he paid her mother for soliciting her own child but his rape conviction happened for him because he raped his own family and they have never asked for any money because they dont need it. They want the singer dumbass to serve time and this is what will happen for the next 10 years. LOL

OK what i don't understand is if your daughter just wanted to see her boyfriend and get out from being there Then why not Say YOU did these things to her ? why your brother? 2nd thing it seems close friends and family are commenting so alot of the stuff being said has to be true like your daughter being kinda lose.DIDN'T you ever try to figure out WHY?! I know you as her father should of saw something was going on if not with your brother then WHO? Children are not suppose to act in such a manner. Something did happen to your daughter and as her FATHER YOU FAILED HER!If the courts placed her with you it was because you were the most fit parent and YOU didn't do right by her. I know that much is true.Everyone needs to take a step back and try to remember that she is a CHILD with a CHILD ! and ask their selfs WHY?!

NO , if you know anything about children who have been sexualy abused you would know it corupts thier mind in thinking that what they have been through is love thus seeking out sexual partners in turn making them very sexualy active both girls and boys go through the same mental reasoning.

Just in case you haven't heard.

Appeals court refuses hearing on Tejano star's case

The Brownsville Herald
The state’s highest criminal appellate court has rejected Tejano artist Joe Lopez’s fight for a new trial on child sex abuse charges.

The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals declined to take up the 59-year-old’s request for review earlier this month.

Lopez was sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2006, after being convicted on two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and one count of indecency with a child. He has tried to get a higher court to overturn the decision since then.

The charges stemmed from accusations that Lopez had sex with a 13-year-old relative in 2004, while she and her father were staying at his Rancho Viejo condo. Forensic experts identified Lopez’s DNA on the girl’s shorts.

In an earlier appeal to the Edinburg-based 13th Court of Appeals in 2007, Lopez contended that the evidence presented at his trial was insufficient to support a guilty verdict and that the original state district court that heard his case should have declared a mistrial because of intense media scrutiny.

Those appeals court justices stood by the trial court’s decisions.

The Court of Criminal Appeals’ ruling May 12 effectively ends Lopez’s state appeal process. His attorneys — who did not return after hours phone calls for comment Wednesday — could appeal the case to the federal level.

Lopez remains incarcerated at the state prison in Rosharon outside of Houston pending an Oct. 27, 2026, release date. He becomes eligible for parole in 2016.

Yet he still has a big fan base with listeners at 99.4 FM Que Pasa, the Rio Grande Valley’s Tejano station, said Program Director Mando San Roman. The station continues to receive calls from listeners requesting his music and about one call a week from listeners wanting to know the status of his case.

“That hasn’t changed at all,” San Roman said.“He has always had a large fan base without a doubt.”

Lopez, 59, co-founded Grupo Mazz in the 1970s and became the group’s lead vocalist, producing several hits and albums. He and co-founder Jimmy Gonzalez split in 1998 and formed separate bands, but each managed to keep the name in some fashion.

The duo released an album in 2007 – Joe Lopez, Jimmy Gonzalez y Grupo Mazz: The Last Dance Mazz Live Reunion — that was to kick-off a reunion tour they had planned. The tour never happened.

From the evidence, one can only believe it is true. So to you Joe lopez, I say...you are an enormous embarassment to your family and to the mexican community. For every night you would go and sing a song, for every night in a different city, for every kiss and hug you received from a female fan, and for every clap you received when you were done singing...you dropped to the lowest point a man can fall. May God forgive you and someday may the child learn to cope with this unimaginable life long memory without recourse.

I think it was a hugh setup!!!! Someone didn't get her way, so they set him up. Come on people !! He has to much to loss ( he just lost everything) He shouldn't of ever let her move in to his home ! Bad mistake! I will always play his music and enjoy it like always!! I met my husband 17 years ago at one of his dances and the music just make me love him even more. Joe my prayers are with you and your loved ones. may god be with you !!!!!!!
Here in houston I agree. It was a setup. The chiflada girl probably got upset when Joe turned her down. I have a friend that had a case like this. His 14 year old neice tried to hit on him! He turned her down (obviously), and she was furious! Since he wasn't down with her, she accused my friend of sexual abuse! Come on people! Joe? I don't think so! Who's word are they going to take?! Hers of coarse!! I still jam to Joe's songs with Mazz. As a fellow musician, I will always appreciate Joe's songs and music. When Joe gets out and starts to perfom again and comes to Houston, I'll be there supporting him!!

The chifldo was an idiot called joe lopez an old man that only had a woman named tina his old wife to sleep with and he wanted a child like norma jean from san antonio. he didnt care that it was his family he didnt wan his sick wife that was a stripper for many years he wanted a child. joes music was good but now his music is stupid he made his bed and now he must ly on it. The other chiflados are his mother and his stupid brother lorenzo and saul. they ask stupid because joe lopez would support both of them not to mention his mother and his sister alma trevino.
