Caroline man gets prison for molesting girl
FREDERICKSBURG – A Caroline County man will serve 10 years in prison after being sentenced in Fredericksburg Circuit Court for sexually molesting an 11-year-old girl.
Jonathan Rodriguez-Arzuaga, 20, of Woodford pleaded guilty Thursday to abduction and sodomy. Under the terms of a plea agreement, a rape charge was dismissed.
He was sentenced to a total of 50 years in prison with all but 10 years suspended.
Rodriguez-Arzuaga was staying in a Fredericksburg home and sexually assaulted the girl one night while her mother slept.
The girl told her mother the next day and was taken to Mary Washington Hospital, where evidence was recovered indicating she had been sexually assaulted.
Police obtained warrants to arrest Rodriguez-Arzuaga, but he had fled. He turned himself in at police headquarters May 19.
Rodriguez-Arzuaga has been held in the Rappahannock Regional Jail since his arrest.
