RIO RANCHO, N.M. — A man convicted more than two decades ago in Virginia of indecent acts with a child has been ordered held pending trial on new charges in New Mexico.
A state district judge agreed Tuesday with prosecutors from the New Mexico Attorney General’s Office that 61-year-old Francisco Saucedo of Rio Rancho should remain in custody without bond.
Court documents show agents arrested Saucedo last week after finding pornographic images and other documents related to children on his computer and on other digital storage devices.
In addition to three child sexual exploitation charges, Saucedo is accused of sexually assaulting a young relative, voyeurism and failing to register as a sex offender. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney.
Authorities say the charges stem from a months-long investigation.
