Man denies threatening girlfriend's parents on Facebook

January 25, 2012 |  3:55 pm

A 22-year-old parolee accused of threatening his teenage girlfriend's parents on Facebook pleaded not guilty Tuesday to multiple felony charges.

Raul Reinoso faces two felony counts of making criminal threats against the parents after they tried to stop him from seeing their 15-year-old daughter.

He also is charged with three felony counts of unlawful sex with a minor and one count of oral copulation with a minor, according to a criminal complaint in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Reinoso was arrested Sunday at his home in Glendale after the girl's parents reported the threats to police that same day, the Glendale News-Press reported

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

Reinoso allegedly had been 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.
