Villella was indicted on four additional charges of sexual battery in April of 2019 after another victim came forward, according to a Montgomery County Prosecutor press release that was released at that time.
“A second victim came forward and reported that the defendant has forced her to submit to sexual conduct as well,” the release says.
An investigation determined that the incidents with that victim occurred before the first indicted incident, the release says.
The prosecutor’s office said the second victim was also a female inmate at the Montgomery County Jail.
A Montgomery County Prosecutor spokeswoman said the six counts will merge into three counts after the plea. She said there were no agreements with regard to sentencing made prior to the plea, but he will have to register as a Tier 3 sex offender for life.
