Humberto Corona denies that he and a friend held a 13-year-old Irving girl against her will.
The two men who were taken into custody in connection with the disappearance of a 13-year-old Irving girl are now facing charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child.
In a jailhouse interview on Tuesday, Corona said the girl was not held against her will and that "she was free to go the whole time. She never asked to leave."
The unlawful restraint charges the men were originally arrested on have been dropped.
"They should let me out since they found her," Corona said in the jailhouse interview.
Police are only releasing limited information in case because of the sensitive nature of the investigation and to protect the victim.
