A Paso Robles man is being held on suspicion that he sexually abused a young girl dozens of times between August 2013 and March 2017.

Gustavo Perez-Medina, 40, faces 39 felony charges in San Luis Obispo Superior Court, alleging that he sexually abused the girl, identified in the complaint by a pseudonym, in both San Luis Obispo County and Los Angeles County.

The charges break down into three categories: 33 counts of lewd acts upon a child, four counts of sexual penetration with a foreign object, and two counts of oral copulation with a person under 14.

The girl is 12 years old and was 8 when the alleged abuse began.

Perez-Medina is in custody at San Luis Obispo County Jail on $100,000 bail. His next hearing is scheduled for April 17. His attorney, Ilan Funke-Bilu, was not available for comment Tuesday.
