Abilene woman begs state to drop child sex charges against her husband


ABILENE, Texas - The wife of an Abilene man is desperately trying to get the state to drop child sex charges against her husband.

Kimberly Martinez says her husband is not a pedophile.

Sonny Rudy Martinez is charged with sexual assault of a child. The alleged victim in this case is his wife.

The two began dating when she was almost 14-years-old and pregnant with someone else's child.

The couple married in 2015 and now have two children of their own. The youngest is just two-weeks-old.

In 2013, Kimberly's mother pressed charges against Sonny, who was then 17, during a custody battle. She later dropped the charges.

Still, Martinez was indicted in 2015. On Wednesday, he was arrested during a traffic stop.

A judge set his bond at $75,000. The Martinez family can't afford the $3,000 it will cost to get him out. So, they set up a Go Fund Me page to raise those funds.
