A Santo Domingo Pueblo man has plead guilty to abusive sexual contact.
Santiago Quintana Jr., 70, is accused of sexually abusing two girls. According to court documents, on Jan. 25, the Bureau of Indian Affairs were notified of an allegation of sexual abuse of children by the Santo Domingo School. In an interview with an FBI forensic investigator, the victim said she and her sister had been abused by Quintana for about six years, starting when they were 6 and 7 years old. The girls also witnessed him abusing the other.
In the plea agreement, Quintana admitted to engaging in sexual contact with the victim, who is now over the age of 12 but not yet 16. He faces up to 10 years in prison at sentencing, which has not been scheduled yet, and must register as a sex offender upon release.
