Police said a 26-year-old man had group sex with underage girls at his Hixson apartment on Plaza Hills Lane.

Diego Eloim Munguia is charged with four counts of statutory rape.

The investigation began when in June of last year the mother of a 17-year-old girl told police that her daughter had been having sex with Munguia since the previous year. She said she found nude photos of the daughter and Munguia on her daughter's cell phone.

She said the daughter stated that Munguia would have her bring her 17-year-old friends from school over for group sex. Another girl showed an officer showing the daughter of the woman who contacted police having sex with Munguia in a room with a free-standing, dark-colored, wooden, oval-shaped mirror in the background.

Various topless photos of the first girl were found on the phone as she embraced Munguia as well as other nude photos of the first girl, other unknown nude girls, unknown male and female having sex and photos of a penis.

The daughter of the woman who contacted police admitted performing sex acts on Munguia and said she had stayed with him the prior two weeks. 

A couple living next to Munguia's apartment identified the mirror and the setting in the sex video as being his unit. They said they had seen him and the girl having sex on the living room floor.

Munguia was arrested last July on charges of coercion of a witness and tampering with evidence.

He was picked up on the statutory rape counts last Wednesday. He was living on Mack Drive in Cleveland, Tn.

Could The Marriage Decision Spark A New Independence Day?

I confess that this year I am having a hard time with the idea of celebrating the 4th of July Independence Day. It is not because I am not thankful to God for what was done on that day, what it represents, and the blessings I’ve experienced that flow from it. On the other hand, I want to think that maybe this year’s celebration will mark a period in our history in which a new movement ... (click for more)

Foremost is the plea to anyone who shoots off firecrackers to please wear eye protection and ask watchers to stand back. Our eye doctors say firecracker-related injuries have doubled in the last three ... (click for more)
