Daniela, the eldest daughter of actor Héctor Parra, who has been in prison since last June, filed a complaint against Ginette Hoffman for the crime of omission of an alleged crime, which if found guilty, the actress could face up to seven years of prison.
In June of this year, the actor Héctor Parra was arrested after being pointed out by his youngest daughter, Alexa, of having sexually abused her as a child. The young woman was supported by her mother, Ginny Hoffman, who spoke with some media about the crime that her ex-partner had committed against her daughter.
Based on article 181 of the Criminal Code, today the lawyer José Luis Guerrero, legal advisor to Hector Parra and Daniela, presented the complaint to the Attorney General’s Office, as reported, to force the authorities to investigate the actress for not have reported for several years.
“Sexual abuse has to be reported by whoever knows about it, especially in the case of a minor (…) This person has indicated on multiple occasions to various media, even before approaching the authorities, that he knew of the Crime. So this omission of not having made the complaint, which the victim ends up making when he is of legal age, today has to be investigated if he is talking about a full compensation for the victim, “he added.
What does the law say?
Article 181 Quáter establishes that whoever becomes aware of a conduct of sexual abuse and does not go to the competent authority to report the fact and prevent the continuation of the conduct will be punished from two to seven years in prison.
The lawyer wants an equal investigation to be carried out for the young woman’s two parents, then a minor, who today is considered a victim of abuse.
“The public prosecutor has already learned of this complaint and will have to review what is missing in Héctor’s folder and the matter could be prosecuted … if for them, after these almost six months of complementary investigation, Héctor is still likely responsible, then these Conducts, as they exist, of course update the criminal type of that person who has kept knowing them and not having reported them. “
The lawyer also pointed out that he considers the authorities’ opinion illegal to impose preventive detention on the actor, since he should have been tried depending on the date on which he is supposed to have committed the crime, when this measure was not yet implemented on those who were pointed out by sexual abuse, but should have obtained the benefit of carrying out his process in freedom.
“A reform was made that indicated sexual abuse as a crime of informal preventive detention … the ruling of the control judge is so crude that despite knowing about this reform and that Hector’s behaviors were allegedly committed between 2008 and 2014, Prior to this reform that aggravated the behavior, they maintain this measure, which is completely an abuse by the judicial branch of Mexico City. “
