In December of 2012, Linares touched the genitals of a young girl he knew. The girl was just 12 years old. Then, between October 2012 and July 2013, the Rockland County man engaged in conduct that endangered the welfare of the child, officials say.
“Children are one of our most precious resources and represent the future. The abuse of an innocent child is unconscionable and sickening. My office will continue working with our local, state, and federal partners to protect children in Rockland County. We will be seeking the maximum penalty under the law at sentencing," Walsh stated.
