Investigators say a Texas man sexually assaulted an 8-year-old girl while his wife watched.

Mark Munoz and Angela Munoz are in police custody, each charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child. Bail for both is set at $100,000.

According to court documents, the alleged victim, now a 21-year-old woman, said Mark Munoz raped her at a home in Harris County in 2001 while his wife, Angela Munoz, watched.

The girl allegedly told Angela Munoz after the assault that she was in pain. Investigators say Angela Munoz told the girl she would be fine, adding that Mark Munoz was sorry, didn’t know what he was doing, and was drunk at the time.

The alleged victim says she was raped again by Mark Munoz when she was 14. She says it happened at an apartment in Harris County, and again, while Mark Munoz allegedly raped the teen, Angela Munoz watched. The accuser says Angela Munoz cleaned her up after she was assaulted.

Court papers show the alleged victim says she became pregnant when she was 14 and gave birth to a daughter as a result of the assault.

The alleged victim says she was repeatedly raped by Mark Munoz during her pregnancy.

Court documents say DNA tests indicate Mark Munoz is by a probability of 99.999% the father of the alleged victim’s child.

MAN ACCUSED OF RAPING YOUNG GIRLS, INFECTING THEM WITH HIV

HOUSTON — David Richard Wilson, 33, was found guilty of the sexual assault of a child in 2005 and sentenced to four years in prison. Six years later, Wilson was back in court, accused in two new cases that, if proven, may have lifelong consequences for two more children.

Wilson is charged with super aggravated sexual assault of a child. The enhanced charge is because of the age of the alleged victim. She was only 23 months old at the time. We have also been told that the child is Wilson’s niece.

A court document states that the alleged assault occurred last year. The toddler’s parents are said to have lived out of state, had drug problems, and sent their daughter to live with family in Houston. The child is the daughter of Wilson’s sister.

Last November, the toddler was taken to a doctor, where she was diagnosed with HIV, genital herpes and chlamydia. Reconstructive surgery was performed because of infection to her private parts. A doctor told investigators that she had to have been sexually abused because of the sexually transmitted diseases that were detected.

Four people in the home where the child lived were tested. Only one, the affidavit states, tested positive for HIV. It was David R Wilson. It’s unclear why Wilson was not arrested at the time.

Last month, a 14-year-old girl spoke to the Children’s Assessment Center, telling a caseworker she had been having sex with a man for two years. She identified the man as David R Wilson and said she was pregnant. An exam of the girl showed that she was HIV positive, had herpes and chlamydia.

Football Star Exonerated on Rape Charges Wants State to Pay Up

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

Brian Banks, a former Long Beach Poly High School football star, had his rape conviction thrown out this week after the alleged victim admitted to lying about the incident. Banks spent five years in prison after pleading no contest to forcible rape and is now seeking money from California.

“We do not plan on taking any legal action against Gibson,” said Banks’ attorney, Justin Brooks of the California Innocence Project, referring to Banks’ accuser, Wanetta Gibson. “We do plan on filing a state claim for the $100 a day Brian is entitled to under State Law 4900 for every day he was wrongfully incarcerated.”

Wanetta Gibson accused Banks of raping her at Long Beach Poly High School back in 2001 when she was just 15. Her mother sued the Long Beach school system, which led to a $750,000 payment from a civil suit.

In a strange turn of events Gibson friended Banks on Facebook, and offered to help him clear his record after admitting that she lied about her claims. However, she refused to re-tell her story to prosecutors in fear of losing the money she received in the lawsuit.

L.A. prosecutors are not planning on suing Gibson for making false accusations, saying it would be a tough case to prove.

During the time of his arrest Banks had garnered attention from such college powerhouses as University of Southern California, University of Michigan and University of Ohio, but had given a verbal agreement to play for USC on scholarship.

During an interview with the Today show on Thursday Banks revealed that he still had hopes to play in the NFL.

Elementary school educator accused of being ‘intimate’ with middle school student more than 200 times

Friday, March 9th, 2012

A former teacher and vice principal is accused of being intimate with a student 231 times over two years.

The alleged victim, who is now 22, testified in court today at Vernon Public School teacher Deborah Ashton’s retrial in B.C.

The 22-year-old is the prime witness in the case and accused his former elementary school teacher of being intimate with him more than 200 times during their two-year affair which started when he was in grade 7 and went on for two years.

Ashton is being tried again on charges of invitation to sexual touching, sexual interference of a person under 14 and sexual assault after her first trial in 2011 ended in a hung jury.

Under questioning from defence lawyer Terry La Liberte, the man said not all of their encounters were explicitly sexual, according to CBC News.

He said sometimes only kissing was involved, but 20 to 30 per cent of their intimacy involved intercourse, which took place in her car.

But the alleged victim’s truthfulness has been questioned after he couldn’t remember details about her car or even that she has a tattoo on her stomach.

He claimed that Ashton got the tattoo later, and that she was wearing a shirt during all of the encounters.

No one saw the two involved in sex acts, and the boy never told anyone about them until about two years after they ended.

Mr LaLiberte said to the man when he insisted he was telling the truth: ‘No, you’re not sir. You made this up at the basketball camp and this is how you got into this.

Yesterday he testified that Ashton, who was 37 when she allegedly started the relationship, told him she had to end their affair for fear her husband would find out.

The crown has added two more charges to Ashton and several witnesses to the case. She had pleaded not guilty to all charges.

The trial is scheduled to continue for another ten days.

Women beat up gay man, claim it wasn’t a hate crime because they’re lesbians

Sunday, February 26th, 2012

Three women accused of beating up a gay man claim they cannot be charged with a hate crime because they are all lesbians.


Sisters Erika Stroud, 21, Felicia Stroud, 18, and Lydia Sanford, 20, are charged with viciously beating the man and breaking his nose after he bumped into them at a train station in Boston.

The women all face hate crime charges of assault and battery with intent to intimidate, which carries up to a 10-year prison sentence.

Sisters Erika Stroud, 21, left, and Felicia Stroud, 18, right, both claim they should not have been charged with a hate crime because they are lesbians.

But Carolyn Euell, 38, mother of two of the Strouds told the Boston Herald that the alleged attack ‘can’t be hateful’ because both her daughters are lesbians.

Prosecutors said no matter the defendants’ sexual orientation, they can still face the charge by the use of hateful language.

Prosecutor Lindsey Weinstein said the two sisters and Sanford, who is one of their domestic partners, repeatedly punched and kicked the man on Sunday at the Forest Hills T station in Jamaica Plain, reports the Herald.

She said the victim told the police he believed the attack was ‘motivated as a crime because of his sexual orientation’ since the three women ‘called him insulting homophobic slurs’.

But attorney Helene Tomlinson, who represented Sanford, told the judge her client is ‘openly identified as a lesbian … so any homophobic (conduct) is unwarranted.’

She said the alleged victim was the aggressor and used racial slurs: ‘He provoked them.’ reports the Herald.

Felicia Stroud’s attorney, C. Harold Krasnow, said, ‘They don’t know what his sexual orientation is, just like he doesn’t know what theirs is.’

But Jake Wark, a spokesman for Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley, told the Herald that the prosecutors will have no problem proving the women committed a hate crime, even if they are lesbians.

‘The defendants’ particular orientation or alleged orientations have no bearing on our ability to prosecute for allegedly targeting a person who they believe to be different from them,’ he said.
