Child Molester Escapes During Lunch Break

Monday, July 17, 2006

Authorities are searching for a child molester who fled during a lunch break in his trial. Felipe Ocampo, 33, was on trial for aggravated sexual assault of a child. He was out on bond during the case. On Wednesday, during a lunch break in the trial, Ocampo took off.

Jurors still convicted Ocampo, and he was sentenced to 40 years in prison with a $10,000 fine. Investigators believe he is either hiding out in Pasadena or is on his way to Huiczucl, Guerrero, Mexico.

Ocampo is 5'10" tall, weighs 205 pounds, has black hair cut in a long burr, and brown eyes. His last known address is 1304 Glencrest Street in Pasadena.
Ocampo was on trial for sexually assaulting a family member over a period of five years, beginning when the child was 10 years old. He kept his victim quiet by threatening that she would be taken away from her family if she told anyone. The victim finally spoke up in October 2005 when she learned that one of Ocampo's brothers had begun sexually assaulting one of her young cousins.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information leading to the capture of Felipe Ocampo. Anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS. All callers remain anonymous.
