Ross Longoria AGE 28
Online Solicitation of a Minor

On Wednesday, 01/16/2019, Aransas Pass Detectives arrested Ross Longoria Jr., AGE 28, for Online Solicitation of a Minor. His bond has been set at $250,000.00.

Back in June of 2018, Longoria, a registered sex offender, was reported through Tri-County Crimestoppers for having a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old girl. Detectives immediately began investigating the case, but the evidence was scarce due to poor cooperation from the involved individuals.

Longoria is no stranger to targeting underage girls. He currently registers for sexual offenses he committed against girls ages 14, 14, and 16. Longoria uses social media to communicate and groom his victims, as he did in the current case.

On Wednesday, Longoria was arrested and charged with online solicitation of a minor. Detectives then searched his home and seized more digital evidence. The case continues, and detectives anticipate additional charges may be filed in the near future.
