ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Thursday, a grand jury indicted an Albuquerque dad who allegedly raped his daughter’s friend.

Police say 43-year-old Ben Aguilar threw a party for his daughter’s high school friends at his home on the Pajarito Mesa.

They say Aguilar gave them alcohol, and had sex with a 15-year-old while she was in and out of consciousness.

Aguilar claims he thought she was 18 and didn’t realize she wasn’t until the next day. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
