Paso Robles man allegedly kidnapped 12-year-old girl

August 9, 2012

Juan DeAquino

Police arrested a 41-year-old Paso Robles man on Saturday for allegedly kidnapping and molesting a 12-year-old Saint Helena girl.

The girl’s mother reported her daughter missing From Saint Helena on July 28. Investigators suspected the mother’s ex-boyfriend Juan DeAquino had taken the girl.

Detectives found the girl in Morro Bay where she had stayed with DeAquino for about a week.

Morro Bay police arrested DeAquino in Napa on charges of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14-years of age and transported him to San Luis Obispo County Jail where he is being held without bail. He also faces charges of kidnapping.

    Folks,
    This scum bag will go to prison as child molester. The inmates will be his judge, jury and executioner.

    I’m curious how people assume that this case is linked to illegal immigration. I am not saying that he is not an illegal immigrant (or his victim), but that his status as an immigrant (or not) is likely unrelated to what he did (assuming that we’re being given a substantially correct story.).

    Child molesters are present in all races and cultures, they are not unique to “foreigners” or “illegals.” A case could be made for cultural conditioning if the girl involved was in her mid to late teens as some backwaters of Mexico and Central America view females of such age as marriageable women. But that is not the case with an 11-12 y.o. girl.

    There are legitimate reasons for decreasing illegal immigration — and for debating how to do that. But please stop letting your unbridled emotions rule your thought processes and limit your arguments to those which have logic and facts behind them.

      One legitimate reason for stopping illegal immigration is that criminals are not weeded out as they are with legal immigration. Known criminals, known pedophiles, and people with infectious diseases are coming across the border and settling in our towns and cities.

    Paso just moved into first place as the kidnapping capital of SLO County. Will someone wake up the City Manager and Council to let them know.

      And what would you have them do, Citizen? What would be your preventative solution?

      Idiotic comment

        Simple really,
        First offence cut off one hand, second offence the other hand…
        Anyone who “touches” a child should get an E ticket to the gas chamber at the head of the line…
        There is no excuse, there is no defence period, you just don’t do it…

          IF there was indisputable proof of such an offense, I would have little problem with your solutions. The big problem is that often such offenses are not clear-cut. (i.e. “he said-she said”.)

          Children have been known to lie about such things whether out of anger at a particular adult or in response to coaching from a “trusted” adult. And I do NOT trust the judgment of some in the law enforcement community to be objective when this subject comes up. Even worse is the political nature of so many of the prosecutorial decisions from the offices of our current DA.

        First, they might acknowledge that we have drug, gang, and crime problems in Paso. They could have the Police Chief make a report to the Council on what has transpired. Then, they might ask the Sheriff’s Department to come back in to help patrol and make traffic stops in the affected neighborhoods. Then, I would think they would start setting up some citizen committees and neighborhood watches in these areas.

        Do you think they should just turn their heads and pretend nothing is happening? Then you would support what they are now doing.

          ok

          how is what you propose going to stop the next perv from leaving Paso, kidnapping another girl from the bay area and holing up in Morro Bay. How does the police chief and CC prevent that?

          Keep in mind that Aquino isn’t to found as registered sex offender.

          Point is , bad guys do horrible/bad things and a lot of the time there is no one to blame but the bad guy

            It is almost impossible to prebvent, bad people will always do bad things to the innocent…

            But it would be a simple matter to, enforce all of our existing laws…
            It is already illegal to snatch(kidnap), touch or hurt children”(lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14-years of age”) , it is already illegal for anyone from any country to enter the USA ILLEGALLY, it is already illegal to aid and abet illegal activity, it is already a felony to consume or sell illegal drugs, it is already a felony(automatic jail time) to have gang enhancements attached to crime…
            IMHO, they is too much turning the other cheek and too many crimes are commited and not “prosecuted properly to the fullest extent of the law”…

          Now that the hot-tub predator, ex-police-chief Lisa Solomon, is no longer chief, maybe they can actually get some close-to-real crime statistics.

      This did not even happen in Paso Robles, nice stretch. The kidnapping happened in St. Helena, and then he went to Morro Bay to hide out. Why is this Paso Robles’ fault that this happened? Because he lived in the city at one time? How about this: by looking at the mug shot, I would put MONEY that this guy is an illegal alien. How about we blame the country of Mexico? The pourous borders between the US and Mexico? You see PASO ROBLES in the headline and automatically fault is levied. At least give some sort of connection besides having an address that comes back to Paso Robles (again, in the US illegally I would bet).

        Paso does not need to be the gathering place or new home to illegal immigrants (some of whom are criminals) or the new home for Norteno gang members from King City and Greenfield, or a new mecca for parolees, drug dealers, and meth freaks.

        By having little knowledge of the people in our community and very little police surveillance, we encourage a collection of perverts, thieves, and druggies that prey on our own hard working residents and others outside the city.

        Yes, Paso has to accept the responsiblity of clearing out the criminals and discouraging illegals (about whom we know nothing) from coming here. Otherwise, we have to accept the fate of other cities that didn’t do this, like Santa Maria, King City, Greenfield, Salinas, and Stockton.

          Paso needs to stop allowing illegals to get section 8 housing in the city in direct conflict with the federal laws. They also need to stop giving development fee reductions to developers who use illegals for construction work. They can also strongly advise contractors to the city, ex. Martinelli landscapers, that they should use workers with green cards or citizens when they contract with the city.

          They can start encouraging vineyards and wineries in the surrounding county to avoid bringing in illegal farm workers, and to provide housing for these people when they do.

        How about also blaming the US for not securing our borders sufficiently by letting these scumbags enter illegally?

    Animal. Since he crossed state lines these should be federal charges which may make a plea bargain less likely. For once I can say, good job to law enforcement. Would like to know more how they found him. Is he a citizen?
