Immokalee man to serve 25 years for molesting girl

A 47-year-old Immokalee man received a 25-year prison sentence Tuesday on a charge that he molested a young girl in Collier County.

Maruo S. Perez pleaded no contest Tuesday to a single charge of lewd and lascivious molestation stemming from a February 2010 arrest. He had been held on $250,000 bond since his arrest.

Reports indicated Perez molested the girl on more than one occasion but fewer than five times. Perez was 44 or 45 years old at the time and the victim was 10 or 11 years old. Perez's address has been withheld due to the nature of the case.
