Bail was set at $100,000 on Sunday for a 69-year-old man accused of sexually assaulting a mentally impaired relative.
Amado Alvarez, of the 2000 block of North Laporte, was charged with criminal sexual assault. He allegedly refused to hand over a relative’s government assistance checks until he had sex with her, prosecutors said Sunday at a bond hearing.
Alvarez’s relative is “slightly mentally impaired,” prosecutors said.
Alvarez has been sexually assaulting his relative for about nine years, prosecutors said.
The most recent sexual abuse happened Tuesday.
