Hill Country Youth Ranch "house parent" arrested on sexual abuse allegations

Kerr County Sheriff's office made an initial arrest at Thanksgiving, but a further investigation uncovered much more, investigators said.

The Kerr County Sheriff's Office has arrested a Hill Country Youth Ranch employee on suspicion of sexually abusing at least two children and having inappropriate contact with several others at the Ingram-based ranch for abused and neglected children.

Sheriff's investigators first heard about the alleged incident on Nov. 26 and then arrested Alexandra Galindo, 30, in Tom Green County, where she posted a $30,000 bond. However, investigators compiled more evidence, re-arrested Galindo, and extradited her to Kerr County, holding her on $100,000 bail.

Galindo was a "house parent" at one of the youth ranch's on-site residences. Sheriff's investigators accuse Galindo of conducting a sexual relationship with at least two children between 13-15 years old. Investigators said they have digital evidence showing inappropriate non-sexual relationships with multiple other children where she was providing alcohol, nicotine vape pens, and narcotics to the children.

Investigators chose to seek a separate warrant for the offense of sexual performance of a child, a second-degree felony.
