Paso Robles police are tight-lipped about the investigation, only saying that detectives are still working on the case for the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office.

They don’t believe there are any outstanding suspects.

Sanchez was booked on six charges, including aggravated sexual assault of a child, lewd and lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14, sexual intercourse with a person under the age of 16, rape, and continuous sexual abuse of a child.

It was not immediately known if Sanchez had been arraigned or entered a plea in connection with the case.

His bail is set at $1 million.
