Aberdeen man pleads not guilty to child molestation


A 33-year-old Aberdeen man pleaded not guilty to first-degree child molestation on Monday in Grays Harbor Superior Court.

Juan Jose Francisco Guevara is accused of molesting an 10-year-old girl. Her mother contacted police June 17 after the girl gave her a note saying Guevara touched her inappropriately. In interviews with police, the girl outlined several incidents over “a lengthy period of time,” court documents stated.

Guevara is being held in the Grays Harbor County Jail with $50,000 bail.
