A La Feria man is behind bars after being accused of molesting a 12-year-old girl.

La Feria police arrested 27-year-old Jonathan Derek Martinez on an indecency with a child charge on Wednesday.

Court records show that Martinez is accused of molesting the girl on several occasions.

The girl told investigators that Martinez had touched her inappropriately several times.

She also said he tried on several other times even though she said no.

Action 4 News does not identify victims of sexual abuse but records show that Martinez had access to the girl through her family.

Martinez remains in custody at the Cameron County Jail under a $50,000 dollar bond.
