An ex-Southlake parks board member sexually abused a teenage girl for more than four years before he was arrested in December, according to a criminal complaint.
Miguel E. Salinas was taken into custody after the girl made an outcry to a third party who then alerted her parents.
Before his arrest, Salinas had been a volunteer board member since 2015. Members are appointed by the City Council and make recommendations on parks-related policy, programs and projects.
The complaint filed last month alleges that Salinas sexually abused the girl, who was identified by a pseudonym, starting in July 2013 when the girl was under 14, and continuing until last Oct. 31, when the girl was under 17.
Never miss a local story.
Salinas is accused of performing sex acts on the girl and forcing her to perform sex acts on him.
Neither the complaint nor police provided any information on how Salinas knew the girl.
Salinas was free Wednesday on $100,000 bail but must stay at least 1,000 feet from parks, schools, pools or any places where children commonly gather and must have no contact with children under 17.
Police said they had not received any complaints of misconduct involving Salinas before his arrest in December.
