Illegal alien child rape suspect says he's HIV positive

Associated Press:

Police say a Fairhope man charged Friday with raping a minor admits he is H-I-V positive. 32-year-old Julio Cesar Cruz Martinez sits in the Baldwin County Jail today accused of rape, sexual abuse and sodomy.

Sheriff's investigators said Martinez confessed to the sexual assault and said he knew about his infection at the time. The child was attacked Wednesday.

Authorities said the young victim, said to be under 12-years-old, and her mother were Hurricane Katrina evacuees and had been living with Martinez.

Bond for Martinez was set at 750-thousand dollars and he is believed to be an illegal alien who has lived in the U-S for several years.

Authorities said the child's health concerns are being addressed.
