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.

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.

Children Must Be Supervised Full Time

Operation “Guardian Angels” went after child predators on-line.

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.
