REXBURG — A trespassing call Sunday afternoon led to lewd conduct charges for a Madison County man.

The Madison County Sheriff’s Office was called to the 800 block of Moody Road around 3 p.m. after someone reported a female trying to break into a house. Deputies arrived and found 25-year-old Aliber Fuentes Trejo, who lived at the home.

While on the property deputies spoke to a witness who said a 15-year-old girl who was not supposed to be in the house was inside. Deputies found the teen hiding in a closet and said a friend dropped her off so she could pick up her glasses.

Deputies were familiar with Trejo and the teen after an investigation opened this summer because the couple reportedly had a sexual relationship.

During the initial investigation this summer, Trejo said he did not know the victim was only 15-years-old.

During the latest incident, Trejo and the victim both disclosed they had had sexual relations within the past month. The victim last recalled a sexual encounter about a month ago, while Trejo claimed it had been only two weeks.

Deputies arrested Trejo for two felony counts of lewd conduct with a child.

Although Trejo is accused of a crime, it does not necessarily mean he committed it. Everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
