Estaben M. Armendarez, Jr., 1305 Jim Cummings Hwy., was sentenced to 9 months in the Cannon County Jail and was placed on state supervised probation for 18 years by Judge Don Ash.
Armendarez was originally charged on Nov. 9 with 10 counts of Sexual Battery by an Authority Figure and two counts of Statutory Rape by an Authority Figure.
Assistant District Attorney General Trevor Lynch said Armendarez admitted to having sexual contact with three juveniles between the ages of 13 and 18. General Lynch said he discussed the case with each of the victims and their families and all agreed to the negotiated plea. The offenses occurred between Oct. 1 and the date of his arrest.
In addition to the 6-year sentences on each count, of which three will run concurrent, and the nine month’s jail time, Armendarez was ordered to have no contact with the victims and must register as a sex offender.
