BERINO, N.M. — New details on a Berino man accused of molesting a 3-year-old boy.
44-year-old Dionicio Carmona was arrested last Wednesday and charged with one count of criminal sexual penetration.
A criminal complaint stated Carmona penetrated the boy with his finger while the boy said Carmona used a stick from a tree.
Dona Ana County Sheriff's said Carmona was the primary caregiver for his girlfriend's three children.
They say the 3-year-old told his mother Carmona had hurt him and was afraid to go home.
According to court records, Carmona was charged with battery to a household member in 2010 but the case was dismissed.
He is currently being held at the Dona Ana County Detention Center with a $100,000 bond.
