Child pedophile Eric Rivera caught after letter to Jesus Christ found

A letter to Jesus written by an 8-year-old girl describing horrible sexual abuse led to the arrest of a child molester in Ohio.

 According to Cincinnati.com, the girl left the letter in a Bible at her elementary school. It described the sexual abuse she endured at the hands of Eric Rivera, and pleaded with Jesus to make him stop.
Rivera, 37, had been abusing the girl for at least two years, according to Covington Police who interviewed the girl.
Police raided Rivera’s home and found pornographic material. Rivera pleaded guilty to sexual abuse and distribution of obscene material and now faces up to 25 years in prison.

“Although 25 years doesn’t seem like enough for the defendant to serve based on the heinous and unspeakable crime he committed, it saves the child victim from being further traumatized by reliving her nightmare of abuse,” Assistant Commonwealth’s attorney Kate Bennett said.

“Every case is hard, but when a child comes so honestly to ask for help from God, it’s a tough, tough thing to swallow,” Asst. Commonwealth Attorney Kate Bennett told WLWT-TV.Rivera was arrested and charged with incest, sodomy, sexual abuse and distribution of obscene matter to minors.

Rivera’s sentencing is scheduled for July 13.
