      The grand jury indicted both Mireles and his wife Castellano with sexual assault of a child an prohibited sexual conduct.

      Mireles remains in custody under a $300,000 bond at the Cameron County Jail but is expected to be arraigned in the 103rd State District Court on September 12th.

      Castellano remains in custody without a bond and an immmigration detainer.

      She's expected to be arraigned in the 445th State District Court on the same day as her husband.
