“I kind of feel dead,” a girl can be heard saying, according to an affidavit obtained by the publication. “I’m a little bit drunk. OK, a lot. And I cannot control and I’m pretty sure I got raped. But I’m too drunk to even care. But I got raped. What the f***. I actually got raped.”

Officers tracked down the girl who sent the Snapchat message as well as two other underage girls she was with at the time and noted in the affidavit that the three appeared to be “highly intoxicated.”

One minor told police she allegedly had consensual sex with Daniel Andrade, 35, while another claimed he raped her, and at least one of the alleged victims informed the suspect of their age, the affidavit states.

Detectives spoke with Andrade at the motel, where he had rented a room. In the room, the affidavit states, police noted a bottle of alcohol he would allegedly provide one of the minors.

According to the affidavit, Andrade allegedly admitted he offered $400 for sex in a Snapchat exchange but instead only paid $100 for oral sex.

Officers took Andrade into custody and booked him into the Bannock County jail on felony charges ofenticing a child over the internet, procuring a prostitute and two counts of lewd conduct with a minor.

He was being held on a $200,000 bond.

If convicted of the charges against him, Andrade faces as much as a $200,000 fine and up to life in prison, East Idaho News reported.
