Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

This guy was so bad that his own family turned him in.

Isaias Linares, 28, was wanted by Miami Police for molesting a toddler in Little Havana. The little girl's mom called cops last week and said that when she confronted Linares about his conduct with her child, he left the house and wasn't answering his cell.

Yesterday, police received a call from Linares' family in Raleigh, N.C. They turned him in to authorities there. He'll be extradited to Miami and charged with sexual battery and child molestation. He faces life in prison if convicted. -- Tamara Lush

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
