A Pleasant Valley man is being held without bail after being arrested for sexually abusing a child over a two-year period, according to the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office.
Cesar Contreras Castillo, 23, was arrested Thursday following an investigation by the sheriff's office and the Dutchess County Child Advocacy Center (CAC), said Capt. John Watterson.
Watterson said at this time Castillo is accused of sexually assaulting a young child over a two year time period. The assaults weren’t arbitrary, so at this time there does not appear to be any threat to public safety.
All further details about the case are being withheld to protect the victim’s privacy, he added.
Castillo was charged with predatory sexual assault against a child. He is being held at the Dutchess County Jail without bail.
Anyone with information about this case or similar incidents involving Castillo are urged to contact Deputy Ben Sistarenik at (845) 486-3778.
