Frederick Police served an arrest warrant on a man that is already locked up in Hagerstown. Jose Manuel Vasquez Hernandez is facing numerous counts of child sex abuse. Authorities became aware of the incident in January when they received information that sexual abuse of minors had taken place in 2009 and 2010. An investigation revealed that during that time, two minors, who Hernandez knew, were sexually abused. At the time the information was received, Hernandez was incarcerated at the Maryland Correctional Institution serving a sentence he received in regards to another victim of sexual abuse, which happened around the same time as this current case. As a result of the previous case he was sentenced to 25 years, with 15 suspended.
Hernandez was indicted by a Frederick County Grand Jury last month.
