Felipe Vazquez Charged With Statutory Sexual Assault of A 13-year-old

 

Pittsburgh Pirates reliever Felipe Vazquez was arrested earlier this week on three felonies charges, including statutory sexual assault and unlawful contact with a minor. The investigation into Vazques began on month prior to his arrest after allegations of him having a relationship with at 13 year old girl. Vazquez was also charged in Florida with computer pornography offenses, including solicitation of a child.
