If the accusations pressed by the Denver District Attorney's Office are accurate, Celia Montoya is guilty not only of serious crimes, but a betrayal of trust that's positively off the charts.

Montoya allegedly held down a ten-year-old family member while her much older boyfriend, Eugene Fernandez, sexually assaulted her.

Learn more about the terrible allegations from the arrest affidavit, seen below in its entirety.

Because of the victim's age and the description of family relationships, the document is heavily redacted. But enough of the narrative remains to understand the extraordinarily rude awakening the girl says she received.

On the night in question, between April and May of 2012, the girl said she was staying in another relative's home and had planned to sleep in the living room. However, she was frightened and climbed into an already occupied bed -- presumably by Montoya and Fernandez.

The girl fell asleep in the middle of the bed -- but she was jolted to consciousness by the feeling of someone touching her "private part;" she also discovered that her underwear had been lowered. She began crying and tried closing her legs, but she couldn't do so -- and neither could she escape, because Montoya "was hugging her and wouldn't let her leave." The assault only stopped when her alleged assaulter, Fernandez, go up to use the bathroom, leaving the girl to sob herself to sleep.

In the immediate aftermath of the attack, the girl didn't report the assault. Then, this year, she had the uncomfortable experience of having to celebrate her birthday with Montoya present. At that time, the girl said Montoya apologized to her for what happened, saying, "I know you didn't like it and that you were uncomfortable around him after that."

This I'm-sorry certainly didn't make everything better for the girl, who told her story to investigators earlier this month. Now, Fernandez has been charged with aggravated sexual assault on a child, while Montoya is accused of sexual assault on a child and child abuse. They currently remain in custody on large bonds -- $100,000 for Fernandez, $200,000 for Montoya -- and are expected in court for a preliminary hearing next month.

This is sick but common, more than we hear about. I agree w/ someone's previous comment 'bout the judges who give these sick pricks light sentences being because they too are predators. What needs to happen is to give child molesters a dose of their own medicine. In this particular case I feel that a slow, torturous death should plague them. Take them out into the woods since that'd be such a scenic place to watch a good show. Strip them naked, hang them by their wrists from a tree and sodomize them with a sharp object. Though, it shouldn't end there. Lower their toes into acid until they are no more and then allow the wild life to eat them alive. A wild boar would be appreciative to feast on these two filthy animals like these two demons.

Awww, Montoya looks like she's about to cry...poor little SICK BITCH! Only crying because she got caught...not because she totally destroyed a child's innocence.  What a sickening P.O.S.

The reason Mr Fernandez only got a slap on the wrist for previously abusing children is because many American judges and state workers are pedophiles as well. If you don't believe me, look at the length of sentences these judges give child rapists (usually very low)  and then look at the length of sentence we give drug offenders (dealers).....One is a consensual crime and the other one destroys a young life forever......The system is chock full of pedophiles and their handlers..,....

I'm squeezing my child so tight right now:( it just doesn't make any sense at all. Poor baby girl:( I hope she's getting the support she needs right now. This is just horrible. Love to that precious soul and all children who go through painful experiences like this. Sad that crimes like this r all too common:(

This is all a traumatizing memory for the young girl, I hope that she is able to move forward. I also think of women and how many times they let men manipulate them into becoming an accomplice to perverted mens fetishes. Pathetic.

Just fucking kill her and her boyfriend now. Take them to the woods and shoot them in the face. Let the wild animals consume them.

Im wondering Why She has a Higher Bail Amount than him. Yes she held her down, but he did the act. And with a Previous History I figured his would be alot higher. Can we just give them the death penalty? They dont deserve to sit in jail rotting and wasting our tax payer dollars.

A decent person can only hope there is any kind of reason in the world, but I can't imagine going along with this even on pain of death, and it's hard to think of anything that could make it less monstrous. :(

Eugene Fernandez is already a convicted sex offender since 2008 for sexually assaulting another child. He just got a slap on the hand back then. And now both sitting in jail under PC? (protective custody?) wow... put them in the pod and let them get the beating they deserve!!

As if this wasn't horrific enough.. Unfortunately she is going have to suffer thru a possible trial and the realization that sex offender convictions in Denver come with very little jail time, if any! As having gone through this process with a very young family member of my own, I can say The Denver DA's office has left her with a feeling of being violated once more by the "justice" system! She was sexually assaulted by her step-father, he was charged with 12 different felony and misdemeanor charges, many carrying 20+ years in prison. But the DA let him plead down to just the sexual abuse of a child charge which carries very little jail time to begin with, but decided the 90 days he had served while awaiting his conviction, along with having to register as a sex offender and PROBATION was sufficient enough! Until changes are made and stricter laws and consequences for sexual crimes are given harsher consequences, we are going to continue to see cases like this and all sex crimes, continue to hurt innocent children! I pray the young victim and her family do not endure the same pain, courtesy of the Denver Distract Attorney's office that my young family member had to suffer and continues to suffer, knowing her attacker is out on the streets. It's absolutely disgusting!

They should get there's in prison if they are ever get put away. We seem to be getting to lenient on sexual abuse. Maybe it should be the death penalty

@mbjhaio Not only that, but, if you read the rest of the things they failed at crossing out, Eugene is Celia's FATHER.  The girl's GRANDFATHER.  You'd have to imagine Celia was a victim of her father, too - of course, that excuses nothing...

What?!?! Were you expecting a mug shot of a red guy with horns and a tail?? Your excuse for this worthless piece of garbage is blind and ignorant. There is no hope for these two psychos, they need to be put down like a rabbit dog.

No one can force you to rape a child..THE BITCH HELPED IN THE RAPE OF THIS CHILD..HOW DARE YOU STICK UP FOR THIS SICK BITCH...YOU'D PROBABLY DO THE SAME THING..

@Karen Neumann Puklin  No, purple is such a lovely color for me and I would hate for it to be associated with criminals like this. Maybe a bright neon color? one that lights up in blacklight too... so that they couldn't really hide anywhere, not even in the darkness.

@soyluy She could be a pedophile herself too. I've heard of women sexually abusing boys young as 5 years old without any man telling her to. Women can be sexual predators too... but it seems that most of them like to hook up with male sexual predators so that they can have somebody else to blame for their own behavior, and thus getting away with a very light sentence.

@broncochic83 I'm sorry you and your family experienced such horrific events and were let down- I can't even begin to imagine the frustration and heart break. I agree changes need to be made to make the system at least somewhat logical- for those who have suffered and to prevent others from suffering. My best to you and your family. -W

@sirrusrider5150 Wrong. Sexual assault is not endemic to any particular race or class. Perverts come in all colors and income classifications. Please read some science sirrusrider5150. Stop Misinformation!

@ᏌᏁᏘ ᏖᏪᎵ Umm, they would have determined that already and it would've been posted in the article.

Yes Celia Montoya, who held her down, is the victims mother. And the guy that assaulted her is the mothers boyfriend. The girl climbed in bed with her mother cause she was scared on the couch. Then she was assaulted in the bed by the mother and boyfriend. You can see it all in the affidavit posted in the article. The info looks like it is crossed out with a marker but you can easily read what it says under it
