THE WOODLANDS, Texas – Additional charges have been filed against a former Montgomery County softball coach.
Juan “Manny” Corona, 44, who is also known as “Coach Manny" now faces seven charges; four counts of sexual assault of a child, one count of sexual assault one sexual performance of a child and one count of aggravated sexual assault of a child.
Since Corona's initial arrest, more victims have come forward stating that they too were assaulted by Corona, according to a press release from the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday.
One of the victims to come forward told investigators that he had been assaulting the victim since the victim was the age of 12, back in 2002. Evidence was collected after search warrant was executed at Corona's home in The Woodlands that corroborated the victim’s statement, including video and photos, according to the release.
The evidence includes video of one of the sexual assaults, the release said.
Capt. Dan Zientek, of the Montgomery County Precinct 3 Constable’s Office, previously told KPRC that Corona has been coaching for about 25 years, with 17 of those years in Montgomery County.
Authorities said he has been giving private lessons at the South Montgomery County Softball League. In some cases, Corona would pick up the children from school and take them to their lessons, Zientek said.
Another victim that come forward said Corona sexually assaulted her while Corona was at a previous employer and the juvenile was a volunteer there, according to the release.
This victim attempted to notify others of the accused sexual assault at the time; however, Corona told people that the victim was just a rebellious teenager and she was lying, according to the release. When this victim saw that others had come forward, she called investigators to make a report, according to the release.
