ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – An Albuquerque man accused of raping teenage girls at a youth shelter will remain behind bars.
Shane Sandoval, 21, allegedly targeted a 12-year-old and a 16-year-old who were staying at an Albuquerque shelter.
His attorney asked the judge to release Sandoval, saying he’s innocent.
“He did not do anything that was not consensual and is not guilty of any of these serious, serious crimes against the 16-year-old or the 12-year-old,” attorney Douglas Wilber said.
The judge denied the request. Sandoval will remain in custody.
