An 18-year-old man is accused of sexually assaulting a grade-school girl.
Jorge F. Zavala Perez told police after his arrest that he had consumed 18 beers and was very drunk when he inappropriately touched the young girl, court documents said.
The girl met with a child forensic interviewer in late May and described how Zavala Perez touched her underneath her clothes, documents said.
Zavala Perez pleaded innocent to first-degree child molestation. Trial is scheduled July 30.
He is in the Benton County jail on $10,000 bail, but will return to court next week so his lawyer can address that amount.
