Charges of sexual misconduct
A 53-year-old Mexico man is facing felony charges of sexual misconduct for a May 18 incident at the Mexico Area Family YMCA involving a 13-year-old male juvenile. A warrant was issued Monday for the arrest of Thomas H. Hugo.
Hugo allegedly sat next to the child totally naked and began touching himself inappropriately and applying lotion to certain parts of his body.
Included in the probable cause statement, during a post Miranda interview, Hugo told the police he has a skin condition and applies lotion after he showers. This was confirmed through Hugo's doctor. Also, a person who often works out with Hugo at the Y stated he often applies lotions to various parts of his body after he showers at the YMCA.
Y officials stated that Hugo has been counseled on cleaning up after himself in the locker room due to his creating a mess with his lotion and powders in the past.
The warrant carries a $10,000 bond.
