Man who allegedly threatened girlfriend's family on Facebook pleads not guilty

A 22-year-old parolee pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges that he allegedly threatened his teen girlfriend’s parents via Facebook after they tried stop him from seeing her.

Raul Reinoso faces two felony counts of making criminal threats against the parents of his alleged 15-year-old girlfriend, three felony counts of unlawful sex with a minor and one count of oral copulation with a minor, according to a Los Angeles County Superior Court criminal complaint.

He was arrested Sunday at his home in Glendale after the girl’s parents reported the threats to police that same day.

They alleged Reinoso sent them threatening messages on Facebook after they told him he was not allowed to see their daughter again.

Reinoso was allegedly dating the girl for about seven months, but her parents thought they were only friends, according to police reports.

Once her parents found out about their alleged relationship, they logged into her Facebook account and changed her password, police said.

Reinoso is due back in court Feb. 7.
