Miami HeraldDecember 17, 2013 

A 21-year-old Big Coppitt Key man was arrested Monday, accused of performing sexual acts on a 7-year-old girl.

Christian Lopez face charges of molesting someone younger than age 12, and molesting someone younger than 12 in his custodial care.

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office says the case came to light a few weeks ago, when the girl told a family member about the alleged abuse and the family member reported it to the Sheriff’s Office.

Deputy Becky Herrin says Lopez "admitted to molesting the girl on multiple occasions." Herrin called it an "ongoing thing" but "the ones we're looking at are recent."

Lopez was jailed in lieu of $300,000 bond.
