FL- Metrorail Jumper Faced Sex Assault Trial

Arrested In February 2007 For Sexual Assault On A Minor

Family Says He Remains In A Coma, Little Hope Of Recovery

4-30-2008 Florida:

MIAMI (CBS4) ― An upcoming sexual assault trial and possible deportation reportedly drove a teen to jump in front of an oncoming Metrorail in Coral Gables.

19-year old Jose Camilo Molina Rezk remains in a coma at the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital. His family told CBS4's news partners at the Miami Herald they've been informed there's little chance of recovery.

In February, 2007, Molina-Rezk was arrested and charged with felony sexual assault and lewd and lascivious behavior by someone over 18 on a child under 12. He spent 3 months in jail before being released on monitored house arrest to await trial.

Molina-Rezk, a Design and Architecture Senior High School graduate, had hoped to serve in the military in Colombia, then follow in his stepfather's footsteps and become an architect.

After his arrest, his family said the prospect of facing either a lengthy period of house arrest, or even prison time, followed by deportation back to Colombia caused Molina-Rezk a great deal of anxiety.

Last Thursday, his family said he dressed for school and headed off to class at Miami Dade College's Wolfson Campus as usual. He arrived at the Douglas Road station just after 7 a.m. Witnesses told police as the northbound train pulled into the station, Molina-Rezk jumped in front of it. Three cars rolled over him, pinning him beneath the tracks. Miami Dade Fire Rescue personnel were able to free him from the tracks and rushed him to the Ryder Trauma Center.

Molina-Rezk's parents said their son led a troubled life. He was sexually abused at the age of 15. He then spent years in therapy and even did a stint in Jackson Memorial Hospital's psychiatric ward at Jackson after reportedly telling a therapist that he was going to commit suicide. ..more.. by
