Iris Rodriguez is a rare alleged female child molester and a new member of the Texas Department of Public Safety's 10 Most Wanted fugitives list. Below is their description of her case:
Iris Iliana RODRIGUEZ has strong ties to Laredo, Texas and Mexico.
"RODRIGUEZ is wanted by authorities for having had improper contact with a juvenile victim on multiple occasions. The initial contact is believed to have occurred while RODRIGUEZ was working as a counselor for a CAPS (Child, Adolescent and Parent Services) program in Laredo. She later became employed at the Border Region Behavioral Health Center in Laredo as a CAPS Counselor, which allowed her to visit the victim at school under the pretext of offering guidance and support for the child's behavioral issues.
On January 22, 2015, the Webb County Sheriff's Office issued warrants for RODRIGUEZ's arrest for Indecency with a Child (3 counts), Unlawful Restraint (1 count), and Harassment (3 counts). When law enforcement officials arrived at RODRIGUEZ's residence to arrest her, they discovered she had absconded. It is believed that she fled in order to avoid prosecution. Since then, additional warrants have been issued.
On March 20, 2015, the 406th District Court in Webb County issued warrants for RODRIGUEZ's arrest for Indecency with a Child by Sexual Contact (3 counts) and Unlawful Restraint Less Than 17 Years of Age (1 count)."
Thoughts? Rodriguez's alleged victim is a 13-year old girl. So this case is unique for a few reasons. We usually see mostly male molesters on the news, and usually if there is a rare female child molester, a male is the victim (from the rare cases I've seen). What makes this case even more serious is that as a guidance counselor, Rodriguez was in a position of trust. It is why catching her is so important, since unlike many other molesters who will have to assimilate themselves into a neighborhood and earn a family's trust, Rodriguez has a skill set for employment in areas where children may be present.
