22-year-old Pleads Not Guilty to Charges of Assaulting Young Girl

SAN DIEGO (FOX 5, KUSI) — The guy arrested for breaking into a Linda Vista home and sexually assaulting a 5-year-old girl made his first court appearance Wednesday afternoon.

Alejandro Confessor, 22, is facing accusations of sex crimes, burglary, and trespassing. He pled not guilty and rejected the charges in court.

“These parents and children went through something that no one should have had to go through,” Deputy District Attorney Eric Bodnar said following the arraignment on Wednesday. “It truly is a parent’s worst nightmare.”

Confessor risks 25 years to life in prison if convicted of all charges.

On Thursday, the suspect entered a home on Wellington St. through an open door and assaulted the five-year-old while she was sleeping. He then left the scene on foot.

Just a few days after the initial incident, on Sunday, surveillance footage appeared to show the same man at the property on Wellington St. around 3:30 a.m. However, authorities stated he did not enter the house and no one was injured.

U.S. News and World Report ranked these public high schools as the finest in San Diego.

Because he returned to the same address, prosecutors claimed in court that he should not be granted the already established $1 million bond. The judge concurred. “Someone who returns to a residence and commits the crimes alleged, we think is a public safety risk, so we think no bail was warranted,” Bodnar said in a statement.

Bodnar verified that the suspect had no relationship with the victims.

A criminal protection order was issued in court on Thursday to protect the two youngsters, and Confessor was ordered not to have any direct or indirect contact with them.

Confessor was arrested around 11:15 p.m. Sunday in the 6700 block of Linda Vista Road after SDPD received a report of a man consuming a beer in the area who matched the description of the burglary suspect.

“Without the collaborative effort of everyone, we wouldn’t have gotten the defendant in custody, now that we have, justice can be served,” Bodnar said in a statement.

The confessor is expected back in court on Thursday, May 2.
