Texas School Cop Arrested for Raping 12-year-old Girl while Recording Encounter

The girl had been reported missing. She was found in a hotel room after allegedly being raped by the cop.

A Texas school cop was arrested last week for raping a 12-year-old girl while recording the encounter.

Jorge Bastida, 22, who was employed by the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District, was still training to become a full-fledged school cop when he met the victim on the online chat service Meetme.

Bastida arranged for an Uber to pick her up and drive her to an apartment where he then drove her to a hotel.

Inside the hotel room, the girl told him she was 12 years old and did not want to have sex, according to ABC 13.

But police say he threw her on the bed and held her by the neck while raping her and recording the encounter.

He then left the room to go to work, leaving the girl inside, which is where police found her on Tuesday after she had been reported missing.

The school district issued the following statement:

> "We are aware of the disturbing allegations that a Cypress-Fairbanks ISD Police Department employee was involved in the aggravated sexual assault of a missing Deer Park juvenile. The employee, who resigned while being investigated, was in a training program and was always under the direct supervision of a field training officer in CFISD. These allegations are heartbreaking to the more than 16,000 other employees who represent CFISD with integrity."

Bastida, who has been charged with aggravated sexual assault on a child, is being held on a $250,000 bond.
