The District Attorney’s Office has secured a guilty plea in its case against Genaro Efren Uribe, 34, for sexually abusing a relative under 14 years of age.
The case came to light on November 11, 2016, when the victim out cried to her mother stating that a male relative, Genaro Uribe, had sexually molested her for over a year. The victim’s mother immediately called the Laredo Police Department to file a sexual assault of a child report. The Special Investigation Unit was called to assist in the case who subsequently took the victim to a local hospital and the Children’s Advocacy Center to undergo a forensic interview. The victim stated that the sexual assaults took place during several occasions at their home.

Hale Jr. Uribe was sentenced to 35 years to serve with no possibility of parole and will begin his sentence immediately at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Correctional Institution Division.
