☛ ER Man held over on sodomy, molestation charges
A man accused of sodomizing and molesting his then-8-year-old daughter was held over Friday on the charges, which carry a life sentence.
Isaias Felix Romero, 33, impregnated his now-wife when she was 13. They married after he pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor. The child from the pregnancy is now a 9-year-old in the fourth grade and the alleged victim of Romero. She will be referred to as Jane Doe.
There was sufficient evidence to move forward with charges of sodomizing a child younger than 10 and continuous sexual abuse of a child, Humboldt County Superior Court Judge Timothy Cissna ruled.
