Rio Grande City, Texas - On early Tuesday, former Rio Grande City (RGC) Police Sargeant Rodolfo Hinojosa, 28, surrendered to the Starr County Sheriff's Office after a judge issued a felony warrant for his arrest for molesting several minors. Hinojosa was booked and charged with two felony counts of sexual assault in connection with having sexual contact with two under age girls, according to the criminal complaint.
Starr County authorities began investigating Hinojosa after sexual assault allegations were reported to authorities about a month ago. Hinojosa was an 7-year veteran with the RGC Police Department.
A judge set a bail bond of $200,000 for Hinojosa. He remains in custody, according to the Starr County District Attorney's office.
