LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A Las Vegas man is facing 27 felony charges alleging numerous sex crimes. 8 News Now has learned that an alleged victim is a family member.
Freddy Caseres, 45, is a supervisory compliance enforcement investigator with the Taxicab Authority, which is responsible for the regulation of the taxicab industry. Caseres has worked there since April 2003.
The charges include sexual assault, lewdness, abuse and kidnapping.
Teri Williams, public information officer for the Department of Business Industry, which oversees the Taxicab Authority, said Caseres is being placed on administrative leave.
Caseres was arrested on May 25.
In court Wednesday, a judge found probable cause to move the case forward.
A prosecutor said, “The facts of this case are very concerning to the state.” She told the court Caseres abused the victim for years, then requested $100,000 bond with a no contact order.
A defense attorney noted Caseres did not have a criminal record, has strong community ties, is a police officer and is not a flight risk. She also said he had family supporting him in the courtroom.
The judge issued $100,000 bond and ordered no contact with the victim.
Caseres’ next court date is June 1 at 8:30 a.m.
