Man Charged With Sexual Assault Has Support Of Victim’s Mother

`A 25-year-old man charged with first-degree sexual assault on a 14-year-old girl appeared in court Tuesday with an unexpected advocate: the alleged victim’s mother. [..]

“I feel Marvin’s in this situation because my daughter manipulated him. She lied to him about her age,” said Estela Torres, the victim’s mother. “In my heart I think if I wasn’t here, I wouldn’t be doing the right thing. I love her. She’s my daughter. I stand behind her. But I also have to support this young man because what’s happened to him is not fair.”‘
