Traffic stop leads to sexual assault charges

A traffic stop Saturday led to the arrest of a 20-year-old Odessa man on multiple sexual assault charges.

According to a Texas Department of Public Safety report, when a trooper pulled Carlos Omar Moreno over near FM2020 and Mercedes Avenue, he found a 14-year-old child in the car.

While speaking with a special agent, Moreno admitted to being in a relationship with the child and to having had sex at least three times, the report stated. In addition, Moreno gave a trooper permission to look through his cellphone and the trooper found a video of Moreno performing oral sex on the child last month.

Moreno was arrested on suspicion of three counts of sexual assault of a child and possession with intent to promote child pornography. He was released from the Ector County jail Tuesday after posting surety bonds totaling $200,000.
