Vincent Gabriel Vega – Family Enables Child Molester

A man suspected of molesting girls in his extended family over a two-year period in Hemet and on the Soboba Indian Reservation in the San Jacinto Valley is due to appear in court today to answer sexual molestation charges.

Vincent Gabriel Vega, 28, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated sexual assault on a child, child molestation and other sex crimes, said sheriff’s Sgt. Stephen Mike.

The girls were between 12 and 16 years old. The offenses came to light Monday evening when one of the girls told a family member, he said.

Mike said that during interviews with family members, it appeared they suspected he was molesting children but “everybody tried to protect him” until the relative reported him to authorities on Monday.

Vega was picked up Tuesday at his home on the reservation, said Mike. He was being held on $502,000 bail, pending arraignment this afternoon.
