WILLIMANTIC, Conn. (WTNH)–The father of 38-year-old Jose Ingles had no comment after his son’s arraignment for allegedly sexually assaulting his own relative.
Ingles is accused of molesting a girl who is younger than 10 for about a year. His arrest came after his wife found him in bed with her. Court papers describe the 9-1-1 call.
“Yes I want the cops in my house right now. I found my husband in bed with [the victim’s name] with no pants on,” Ingles’s wife is heard saying on the call.
In the background Ingles can be heard screaming.
“I was not naked with her. Was I naked with you? I was not naked with you.”
His wife then tells him: “I have no respect for you,” and tells the victim, “you did nothing wrong.”
Ingles was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and interfering with an emergency call. The sexual assault charge came after police continued to investigate and uncover several alleged assaults on the girl. When describing one of the first times the victim told police “she remembers that she was in the third grade when this happened.”
Ingles has denied the charges. News 8 has learned he was convicted of sexual assault back in 1995 and failure to register as a sex offender in 2009.
Ingles was ordered held on $200,000 bond. At this point he will remain behind bars until his next court appearance here in Danielson. That will be in January.
