SALT LAKE CITY — A registered sex offender who had a permanent stalking injunction filed against him by the family of a teen girl now faces numerous charges for sexually abusing the girl, according to prosecutors.
Rudolfo Jesus-Bueno Trevino, 32, of Salt Lake City, was charged Monday in 3rd District Court with three counts of rape of a child, a first-degree felony; two counts of forcible sexual abuse and 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, second-degree felonies; and attempted burglary and stalking, third-degree felonies.
According to charging documents, Trevino started engaging in illegal sexual conduct with the girl three years ago when she was 13. Trevino was a registered sex offender at the time. He has been on the Utah Sex Offender Registry since 2011 following his conviction of attempted forcible sexual abuse.
In 2018, Trevino was convicted of being a sex offender in the presence of a child after police found him with the victim connected to his current charges, court records state. He was convicted of stalking the same girl in February, according to court records.
According to his new charging documents, the girl’s mother believes Trevino had been trying to find her daughter “ever since he got out of jail.” She had been receiving calls and text messages from several unknown numbers inquiring about her daughter, the charges state.
On June 26, the mother found Trevino on the roof of her home trying to get into her daughter’s bedroom by taking her screen window out, according to charging documents.
Police searched Trevino’s phone and discovered numerous explicit pictures and videos of the girl, the charges state.
Prosecutors have requested Trevino be held in the Salt Lake County Jail on no bail, saying he poses a “substantial danger” to the girl and the community.
