Description of Incident:
A former housekeeper was charged with Lewd or Lascivious Battery and Unlawful Sex with a Minor after BSO detectives determined that she had sexually molested a girl left in her care.
The case came to light in October after the 16-year-old girl told an adult that she had been sexually molested by her family’s housekeeper, Waldina Flores, 33, over a four year period. BSO Sex Crime detectives investigated, determining that the sexual activity started when the girl was 12 and involved fondling and other forms of illicit contact. A warrant was obtained, charging Flores with four counts of lewd or lascivious battery and one count of unlawful sex with a minor. Upon conviction, she faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.
After learning that she was under investigation, Flores fled Florida and settled in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Investigators traced her there and local police arrested her without incident last week. A BSO detective brought Flores back to Broward County on Wednesday.
Flores gave a statement to detectives, admitting that she engaged in sexual activity with the victim. An illegal alien from Honduras, an INS (Immigration) hold has been placed on Flores, who is currently being held without bond in the Broward County Jail.
