Local Man Accused of Lewd Acts With a Minor

Authorities are asking anyone with information on Jose Estrada, or anyone who believes they were victimized by him, to come forward.

A Rancho Cucamonga man has been accused of committing lewd acts with a minor he met in an internet chat room.

Authorities are asking for others who may have information on him, or for anyone who believes they are one of his victims, to come forward.

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Jose Eduardo Estrada, 34, on Monday, Nov. 26 on suspicion of lewd or lascivious acts with a minor and sodomy with a person under 18 years of age, authorities said.

Deputies said the victim is a 13-year-old who Estrada met through a chat room. He was reportedly able to get the victim’s cell phone number from him and had been texting to arrange a meeting, detectives said.

Estrada eventually brought the boy back to his Rancho Cucamonga apartment and engaged in sodomy, officials said.

Estrada is an active member of the United States Army and may have lived in other states, according to investigators.

He was booked into the West Valley Detention where he remains in lieu of $750,000 bail. He was scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday in Rancho Cucamonga Superior Court.

Detectives urge anyone with additional information to contact Detective Silvey at the Rancho Cucamonga Sheriff’s Station, (909) 477-2800.

May b the parents should b charge too!!!!!!!!! LOL ya, just what we need, to be sticking people in prison just because they are less than perfect parents. Let that be a lesson to you, parents. If you aren't perfect and over protective, and your child makes a mistake, you can bet you're looking at hard time. Idiot.

Joe Blo, what planet are you from? Parents aren't always to blame for their son/daughter behavior. There are many inmates in state prisons for their own crimes, from rape to shoplifting, but not because the parents let them there, they put themselves there; for what reason? who knows. There have been many siblings from respectable parents who have committed major crimes, people like Patty Hearst, the Mendez brothers and the recent shooting in Connecticut, to name a few. All raised by respectable caring parents. To imprison parents for their siblings wrong doing is dumb and will never happen in America. I would venture to say, by your comment, you are not a parent, you are gay or just stupid!

Kids will be kids... The parents did nothing wrong. Today's kids have more access to this world then we had as kids. I personally know the parent and kid... Good people!! This monster took advantage of this naive kid. This guy is a monster (Jose)... You can not blame the victim, have compassion. No matter how good of a parent we think we are this could happen to us. We need more Prayer in the household.
