What to Know
- The victim was eventually taken to Palmetto General Hospital in Hialeah before being airlifted to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital.
A teenager found himself behind bars after disturbing allegations that he sexually assaulted a teen girl after allegedly drugging her up at a Miramar home earlier this week then posting video of the incident online.
Police charged 18-year-old Jorge Martinez with several counts, including sexual assault of a minor and obscene communication.
He was being held on $550,000 bond Thursday, jail records showed. Attorney information wasn't available.
According to an arrest report, Martinez was at a party on Monday being thrown by the 15-year-old victim, where he allegedly gave her two pills of Oxycodone as others at the party told investigators he was making sexual advances toward the victim.
Later, friends of the victim told police they saw video on social media in which Martinez talked about having sex with the victim while she appeared to be passed out. Additional videos posted showed the victim passed out naked inside the home Martinez was staying at, police said.
The victim was eventually taken to Palmetto General Hospital in Hialeah before being airlifted to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, where she was listed in very critical condition. A detective at Thursday's bond court hearing said she is in a coma and may not survive.
Martinez initially told investigators that he had just kissed the victim, but later admitted to posting the videos online and was placed under arrest.
Brandon Dasent said he was at the party and tried to intervene.
"What I feared was going to happen, happened. I'll never forgive myself for that," Dasent told NBC 6. "At the actual party I did try to stop her from getting back into his arms, his grasp. I pulled her out of the room, I told everyone not to let her back in, but then I regrettably left the party."
