Former MLB player Juan Encarnacion accused of sexually assaulting daughter

Former Major League Baseball player Juan Encarnacion has been accused of committing sexual assault against his daughter, the attorney general’s office in the Dominican Republic’s National District province has confirmed.

Encarnacion’s daughter is a minor and the child’s mother said that Encarnacion sexually assaulted the girl in May, when the complaint occurred.

The National District attorney general’s office also confirmed that the player is in custody at the Palace of Justice in Santo Domingo, the country’s capital, and that Encarnacion will be presented before a judge on Saturday afternoon.

According to a report published by Dominican newspaper Diario Libre, Rosalba Ramos, the head of the prosecution, pointed out that the authorities requested a year of preventive detention against the former player.
