A former Rosemead High School assistant wrestling coach — who was returned from Mexico this week to stand trial in connection with charges that he sexually molested two boys — is scheduled to be arraigned Friday.
Herbert Daniel Ortizmonroy, also known as Herbert Daniel Ortiz, is charged with three counts of lewd act upon a child and two counts of oral copulation of a person under the age of 16, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
Four charges involve a 14-year-old boy, with the criminal complaint alleging that the crimes occurred between July 2008 and June 2010.
The fifth charge alleges that the crime occurred in March 2002 and that the boy was under 14.
Ortizmonroy, 29, was turned over to sheriff’s detectives after a flight Tuesday from Guadalajara, Mexico, authorities said. Ortizmonroy, who had also run a children’s wrestling program in Rosemead, came to the attention of Mexican immigration authorities after walking into a U.S. consulate in Mexico in an attempt to obtain a visa to travel to Guatemala.
A routine check determined that Ortizmonroy was wanted by sheriff’s detectives and he was detained, authorities said.
The allegations came to light after one of the alleged victims ran across Ortizmonroy’s Facebook account and made a video incorporating some of the Facebook material, and the other alleged victim saw the music montage on YouTube, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
Ortizmonroy was jailed on $1 million bail.
