Coral Gables man turns himself in for unlawful sex with minor

Update: The charges against Jose Guillermo de Angulo detailed in this story were dropped by prosecutors on Sept. 10, 2015.

A police search for Jose Guillermo De Angulo, who allegedly met a 16-year-old girl on the Internet and later had sex with her in his apartment, ended Monday when the 32-year-old turned himself in to detectives at the Coral Gables Police Department.

The girl identified De Angulo in a driver’s license photo, and a warrant for his arrest went public Aug. 4. Guillermo De Angulo was charged with one count of unlawful sex with a minor and one of interference with custody.

De Angulo met the girl on Instagram and the two exchanged messages and phone numbers. The girl told police she rode in his 2013 BMW M6 convertible at least five times and that on July 25 he took her to his apartment on Catalonia Avenue in Coral Gables, where police said he assaulted her.

She told police that she told De Angulo she was 18 when he asked about her age.
