A Sugar Land woman walked in on a man sexually assaulting her 13-year-old daughter. Furious, the woman took out her gun and pointed it at 41-year-old Ivan Alejandro Robles. The mother called 911 and informed operators she had just walked in on Robles assaulting her daughter and that she was going to shoot him.

Robles was held at gunpoint until police arrived. Robles was arrested and charged with continuous sexual abuse of a young child. Robles pled guilty and was scheduled for a jury to assess his punishment.

During the painful trial, the young victim took the stand and made a highly emotional and powerful statement. The young courageous girl gave heartbreaking details of the abuse, which had started when she was only 5 years old.

She admitted the abuse escalated over eight years. Robles would punish the girl when she refused to perform certain sexual acts. Tragically, the girl also admitted she contemplated suicide when she was ten to escape his vile abuse.

Pathetically, Robles attorney asked the jury to be lenient since took responsibility by pleading guilty to the charge and had no criminal history. However, lead prosecutor, Jessica Ramos reminded the jury that Robles had stripped the victim of a childhood because of his "vile sexual desires on her at such a young age." The prosecutor urged Robles to bear the consequences of his actions for his entire life because the victim will surely live with the trauma for the rest of her life.


“I asked the victim how she felt after bravely confronting her abuser in court. She said she felt free. You could see the burden lift off her young shoulders," Ramos said.

One more child predator has been taken off the street and Robles was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.


“The act of abusing a child is beyond comprehension yet it is happening every day. The sentence, in this case, sends a strong message for what awaits predators that abuse children," said Tristyl McInnis, Fort Bend County Assistant District Attorney. 

District Attorney Brian Middleton reminded the public, "We will seek the harshest punishment for child predators just as we did in this case."
