A Border Patrol agent who was arrested last year and charged with sexual assault has been found not guilty.

Alejandro Perez of Edinburg was accused of sexually assaulting his then girlfriend back in June 2013. However, the woman didn’t report the incident until November 2017.

The woman reported to police that Perez became “sexually aggressive towards her” while they were engaging in consensual sex at Perez’s residence, according to the complaint.

When she told him, ‘no,’ according to the complaint, Perez reportedly continued.

The complaint also stated that, “Alejandro later admitted to raping her through text but he asked her not to report it because he could lose his job.”
