Perv Spends Month Hiding Under 12-Year-Old Girl's Bed
Last December, Zacharias Adrian Cavasos, a 21-year-old resident of Washington state, met a 12-year-old Oregon girl online. They communicated via Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram and text messages and he persuaded the child to meet him at the Wildhorse Resort and Casino in Pendleton, Oregon.
The girl lived with her grandfather on the nearby Umatilla Indian Reservation and on February 10, unbeknownst to the grandfather, Cavasos moved into the house and kept out of sight by removing some of the slats and concealing himself in a space underneath his underage lover’s bed and in a closet. He managed to avoid detection for two weeks before the grandfather discovered him, ordered him off the property and watched as the kiddie diddler walked down a long driveway toward the road.
But Cavasos sneaked back into the house and continued his illicit relationship with his underage paramour. When the grandfather discovered him a second time, he contacted the authorities and on March 11, Cavasos was arrested. He was barefoot and wearing nothing but shorts and a hooded sweatshirt when he was taken into custody.
On May 6, Cavasos, who admitted engaging in sexual activity with the girl, whom he knew was only 12, multiple times, appeared in U.S. District Court before Judge Youlee Yim You. “When I started reading the nature of the allegations, I really was quite surprised by what I read,” You remarked. “I have never been aware of anyone alleged to have been living in a 12-year-old’s bedroom for a month.”
The defendant’s attorney requested his client be released because of a potential China virus outbreak at the Multnomah County Inverness Jail, where he was incarcerated. Despite her misgivings, You acquiesced and ordered that pending trial, Cavasos be released to a clean-and-sober facility under GPS monitoring and a curfew.
