Oklahoma man found guilty of disturbing case of Child Abuse
NORMAN, OK – An Oklahoma man has been convicted of several counts of child abuse and sexual assault after he reportedly fled to Hong Kong to avoid the charges.
WARNING – This is more than “disturbing”, this is just more proof of the growing evil, sadistic abuse being inflicted on Our Children day after day. BUT, this is nothing new apparently, since the Justice Department sent a very detailed REPORT TO CONGRESS, August 2010… Just another Brick In The Wall for this Legacy Of Failure. Robert StrongBow
In 2019, Jose Perez Manarang, Jr. was arrested after shocking allegations of child abuse surfaced.
According to court documents, “Manarang would put a plastic trash bag and tie it off around [the child’s] neck until [they] ‘about died.’”
Documents state he would also “spank [the child’s] face until it was swollen” and “kick [the child] in the chest with boots on.”
Once the allegations were reported to police, investigators say Manarang fled to Hong Kong.
He was ultimately brought back to Oklahoma and was charged with two counts of rape, child sexual abuse, lewd molestation or indecent proposal, three counts of child abuse, soliciting a minor for indecent exposure, and two counts of procuring pornography.
During the non-jury trial, Manarang’s defense team rested after calling no witnesses.
Cleveland County District Judge Thad Balkman found Manarang guilty on all counts.
He was sentenced to six life sentences, plus 80 years.

Catching Predators: An Exclusive Look Inside A Statewide Underage Sex Sting
ROGERS COUNTY, OK – A two-month undercover sex sting to take down child sex predators ended with nearly a dozen men in jail in Rogers County, but this operation extends far beyond the county line.
Operation “Guardian Angels” went after adults trying to meet and have sex with what they thought were 14-year-old boys and 15-year-old girls.
For the last two months, News On 6’s Reagan Ledbetter rode along with investigators at all times of the day and night, as investigators arrested suspected predators from Joplin, Missouri to Oklahoma City. Months ago, investigators created fake social media profiles of 14-year-old boys and 15-year-old girls.
They arrested 11 men accused of trying to meet and have sex with those children.
Deputies said what people do not realize is predators will do whatever, and go wherever, to meet children. In one of the cases, deputies said the suspect drove from Joplin, Missouri, rented a hotel room, and messaged the girl and told her he wants to have sex with her. But, it didn’t stop there.
Just days later, the operation went to Oklahoma City.
“We have an arrest warrant that we are getting ready to execute on a violent predator down here in Oklahoma City,” said Lt. Kyle Baker with the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office. “He’s been soliciting a 15-year-old female for sex and other disgusting things he would like to do to her.”
Investigators teamed up with OKC police to take down a foster dad, Craig Hooper, who they said told the fake profile he wanted to get her a bus ticket to come to Oklahoma City so he could be her foster father and have sex with her. Investigators said half of their arrests were men trying to meet boys.
They said two of the suspects showed up with loaded guns.
In another case, deputies said Johnny Rose planned to pick up who he thought was a 15-year-old girl for sex and to do drugs, but he tried to get away. They chased him and eventually arrested him on the highway.
“We already positively identified who he was; we were basically just waiting for him to show up,” said Sgt. Bo Williams with the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office. “We’ve already got communications with him in regards to sexual stuff he was wanting to do with our undercover profile; so, he’s bought and paid for.”
In the past, sexual predators had to drive around looking for a child to kidnap. Now, the predators are in your own living room, on your kid’s phone, and you have no idea – until it’s too late.
“They are predators and technology gives them a vehicle to do this. Most of the time if you look at the stats, untouched,” said Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton.
Law enforcement’s worst fear is they don’t get to a suspect before he actually assaults a real victim, but that’s a reality and that’s what led to the arrest of 18-year-old Wade Ennis. He’s accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl, which was captured on video.
Deputies said he admitted to that crime, as well as abusing other children who were even younger.
“That’s the one we want to get,” said Sgt. John Haning with the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office. “He had already touched, or potentially touched, three underage victims. As he was getting older, he was getting more brazen.”
Investigators said parents have to know what their kids are doing online, because the harsh reality is, for every one they arrest they have four more trying to meet a child for sex.
They said 80 percent of all child predators never get caught.
AUSTIN, TX – The Texas Attorney General’s Fugitive Apprehension Unit made several noteworthy arrests last week.
In Travis County, while working with the United States Marshal’s Lone Star Fugitive Task Force, the Fugitive Apprehension Unit arrested Christopher Michael Garcia in Austin on February 23. Garcia had an outstanding warrant for murder issued by the Austin Police Department.
In Ellis County, Brandon Douglas Wilder was arrested in Midlothian on February 23. Wilder had an outstanding warrant for Indecency with a Child Sexual Contact issued by the Midlothian Police Department.
In Smith County, while working with the Joint East Texas Fugitive Task Force, the Fugitive Apprehension Unit arrested Jordan Syncere Hankins in Tyler on February 23. Hankins had an outstanding warrant for Aggravated Robbery issued by the Tyler Police Department.
The Texas Attorney General’s Human Trafficking Unit made one arrest in relation to sexual assault of a child.
In San Patricio County, Gabriel Gonzales, 56, of Mathis was arrested on a sexual assault of a child warrant. This case was received as a tip from the Polaris National Hotline, as well as a request for assistance by the Mathis Police Department. During the investigation, it was determined that in 2020, Gonzales sexually assaulted a child in Mathis. Gonzales was taken into custody without incident and was transported to the San Patricio County Jail with a $40,000 bond.
AG Paxton: TX Lawsuit Results in Court Halting Biden Administration’s Unlawful Freeze of Deportations, Upholding Federal Law
AUSTIN, TX – Attorney General Ken Paxton today lauded the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas after it issued a nationwide preliminary injunction halting implementation of a portion of the Biden Administration’s unlawful memorandum to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The memorandum directed an almost complete freeze of deportations of illegal aliens, violating congressionally enacted immigration laws. The Court also found that the memorandum lacked “a rational explanation” and that the Biden Administration should have given Texas notice and an opportunity to comment on the freeze because it would have a “significant impact” on Texas. That impact would have been a significant financial cost to Texas and taxpayers.
“I fully support the Court’s decision to prevent implementation of the Biden Administration’s unlawful action and prioritize Texans’ safety and the rule of law. A freeze on deportations at this scale would undermine federal law, irreparably harm our great state, and directly endanger our citizens. Law and order must be upheld,” said Attorney General Paxton.
“I will continue to defend Texas against those who unlawfully ignore United States law in favor of their own policy preferences.”
