Man takes plea deal for relationship with 13-year-old
August 26, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Gregorio Padilla-Luis

A 27-year-old Half Moon Bay man who had a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old girl he met at a dance in 2012 is facing three years in prison and lifetime registration as a sex offender after pleading no contest Monday to felony child molestation.

Gregorio Padilla-Luis changed his plea Monday morning as he was set to begin jury trial on three counts of child molestation stemming from his relationship with the girl between July 7, 2012, and June 24, 2013. Instead, he accept a negotiated settlement offered by the judge and prosecutor on the condition of one count for a three-year term. He also admitted committing a violent felony and the conviction counts as a criminal strike in the future.

He will be formally sentenced Oct. 7 after a judge received a report on his likelihood to reoffend.

Padilla-Luis was 25 when he reportedly met the girl, then 12, in July 2012 and they dated for a year and had consensual sex seven times before the relationship was discovered in June. The girl allegedly snuck out of her home at 1 a.m. June 24, 2013, waking her father with the shutting door and sending the family searching for a half hour before they found her partially undressed in the back seat of Padilla-Luis’ truck. Prosecutors say he told the girl’s father that he loved her.

Padilla-Luis remains in custody on $300,000 bail pending sentencing.

Yes, we don't know the dangers
No, they are harmless to others
Maybe, but they're still safe
We should do what we can to encourage use since they're less harmfull than cigarettes
