He was already wanted on a similar charge from Harris County…
MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX- On Tuesday, Precinct 3 Constable Ryan Gable’s Criminal Investigations Division arrested a Houston man who drove to the 8900 block of Research Park Drive in The Woodlands with the alleged intent of having sexual relations with someone younger than 14 years old.
Investigators say 45-year-old Carlos Jose Guerrero began explicitly chatting online with a juvenile under the age of 14. He was allegedly actively soliciting sexual contact. They say Guerrero solicited an in-person encounter and went to The Woodlands for that purpose. Constable Gable’s Detectives and Deputies arrested Guerrero during this alleged encounter.
Deputies then found Guerrero also had active felony warrants from Harris County for Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child < (less than) 14 Years of Age.
Carlos Jose Guerrero, 45, is charged with Online Solicitation of a Minor with Intent to Engage in Sexual Intercourse or Deviate Sexual Intercourse < (less than) 14 Years of Age; and the Harris County warrant for Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child < (less than) 14 Years of Age. His bond is set at $75,000 on the new charge, and he is held without bond awaiting extradition on the Harris County charge. Both charges are second-degree felonies. The Precinct 3 case will be heard in the 221st District Court of Montgomery County.
Guerrero had no prior convictions for sexual assault of a child, so he was not a registered sex offender. His residence is listed as an apartment complex on North Borough, off I-45 North, north of Beltway 8 in Houston.
Precinct 3 Constable Ryan Gable’s Office is a member of the Houston Metro ICAC (Internet Crimes Against Children) Taskforce.
