Foster parent accused of sexually assaulting children in Bexar, Medina counties
Miguel Briseno, 58, arrested Wednesday in Devine
DEVINE, Texas – A Medina County foster parent was arrested Wednesday on charges of sexually assaulting multiple children in his care.
Miguel Briseno, 58, faces three counts of sexual assault of a child.
Law enforcement authorities said victims came forward in Medina County and Bexar County, where Briseno formerly lived.
He was arrested at a home in Devine Wednesday morning following a joint investigation from the Medina County Sheriff's Office, Bexar County Sheriff's Office and the Texas Rangers.
A public records search indicates Briseno was arrested in Medina County in 2013 on a charge of sexual assault of a child.
The charge was later changed to solicitation to commit sexual assault of a child, according to public records.
Records show Briseno pleaded guilty to a reduced misdemeanor assault charge in 2015.
A law enforcement source familiar with the case said Briseno has fostered up to 200 children the past few decades.
A media release from the Bexar County Sheriff's Office indicates that the victims were children placed in foster care in Briseno's home from August 2005 to June 2010.
A warrant obtained by the KSAT 12 Defenders indicates that Briseno sexually assaulted the children in homes, a garage, a van and in one incident at a market in Somerset.
BCSO is urging other possible victims to call 210-335-TIPS.
