Felipe Hernandez Accused of Being Foster Children Rapist Who Later Adopted His Victims

A Santa Ana foster dad is reportedly accused of raping and sodomizing two girls brought under his and his wife's care that they later adopted. Police say they have photos and video evidence of the abuse, which began when one of the girls, now 15, was 9. A videotape allegedly shows 66-year-old Felipe Hernandez engaged in sex acts with the second girl, who is now 17.

KABC/Channel 7 news presented an "exclusive" Friday based on interviews with Santa Ana police, Orange County Social Services and Hernandez's stepdaughter, who reportedly says off camera from the accused's doorway that her mother believes the allegations are true, although the adult stepdaughter adds she was not abused.

Police Corporal Anthony Bertagna, the Santa Ana agency's spokesman, says on camera Hernandez faces multiple rape and abuse counts after an investigation that began last month when the 15-year-old told a school counselor about the nightmare she's been living since 2006. Detectives are also trying to determine whether Hernandez's wife should be arrested, according to Bertagna.

Three children have been removed from the house, including a third former foster kid the Hernandezes later adopted. Police have been led to believe the couple has been barred from taking in other foster children since last year. County Social Services Agency Director Michael Riley could not confirm that because welfare institution code forbids comment on individual cases.

As a rule, Riley's agency stops monitoring the welfare of foster children once they are adopted.

I wonder if his wife did anything or hear about what happened to those defenseless children............. I mean if she heard about it then why didn't do something about it. My suggestion is that she also should also pay for what she did,by not doing the correct step of defending her girls. These people are monsters and I don't understand how they became foster parents in the first place.why did he go through their adopted children knowing that he had a wife. These two people are sick from the head especially Mr. Hernandez. Now everyone knows and they are still going to be faced into more problems. O.o

Ever notice how if its a caucasian molester, the victim will usually be someone outside the family, whereas with Mexicans the molester usually targets a family member (or several)?

@Rafael Salazar A friend of mine was repeatedly sexually abused as a child.  She became a prison guard in a men's facility...some were pedophiles.

@Mitchell_Young do you ever notice that for every 100 caucasian  child molesters there's only 1 LATINO, not mexican child molester?

@aguilas_92703 Of course not. For Mitchie, the White race does no wrong, ESPECIALLY when molesting its own kind.

@Lajimmy Hey jimmycap,

You might want to do some research into 'communicating a threat over the internet'. It's a federal offense. I mean, I don't care, but your obvious  impulse control problems might lead you to send an ill-thought out email or facebook post to/about somebody who isn't as thick skinned as I. 

Just a friendly warning.

@Mitchell_Young @Lajimmy As usual, Mitchie acts like a little bitchie when someone calls him out on his stuff. This is nothing, Jimmy: you should've seen the big whine-fest he put up when someone started posting all sorts of homoerotic content under his name...
