Slobber Left On 5YO Girl Nails Orange County Pedophile

Contreras: But the beer can . . . .
The pedophile who kidnapped a five-year-old Orange County girl near an apartment complex on the night of Sept. 14, 2008, had been drinking beer from a red can while huddled with other men.

That's the testimony of witnesses and a Tecate beer can was recovered in a flower planter near the crime scene the following morning by the victim's mother.

The victim's seven-year-old brother, who'd been playing with his sister and saw the pedophile, identified Manuel Martinez Contreras, a nearby resident, as the assailant during a line-up, but the man's DNA was not on the recovered beer can.

Contreras claims that the beer can evidence exonerates him, but police and prosecutors think otherwise.

The then-35-year-old defendant was accused of pulling down the girl's shorts and underwear to fondle her and commit oral copulation.

Beside the eyewitness identification, law enforcement officials had another major piece of evidence: DNA essentially matching the defendant's slobber was found on the minor's stomach.

After a trial a 2012 jury convicted Contreras of lewd conduct, assault and battery as well as kidnapping, and Superior Court Judge Carla Singer sent him away to prison.

But Contreras appealed, claiming the evidence showed that the unidentified man who left DNA on the Tecate can was the likely pedophile.

A three-justice panel at the California Court of Appeal based in Santa Ana considered the defendant's complaints. After noting Contreras' DNA on the victim's body, the justices ruled this month that any errors during the trial were "harmless" and declared they are confident in the verdicts.

Upshot: Contreras, now 40, will continue to serve his 15 years to life sentence.

"Contreras claims that the beer can evidence exonerates him, but police and prosecutors think otherwise".

Uh, why is it possible to prosecute someone for something that they can't prove because they have no evidence? Is it manufactured? Manufactured evidence.

Lucky for him the "Littering" charge didn't stick.


@tongue_twister_for_t  They found Cotreras slobber on her tummy. Go ahead, smoke some more speed and then concoct some story of how some scummy adults slobber got on the toddlers belly. (the toddler that was orally copulated) lets here how you think this sick fucks DNA got on her belly without sounding like a creep..............waiting............waiting...........that must be a big hit of tweek you are taking...........waiting............yeah. You went to anger management for someone elses problems and Contreras was blowing bubbles on the toddlers belly just before some other asshole orally copulated her. I am guessing we will be reading more about you in OC weekly very soon.

@tongue_twister_for_t Don't worry OC weekly will be writing articles calling for guards to be arrested when he gets what's coming to him in prison.

@tongue_twister_for_t I cover criminal and civil cases in state and federal court. Most intelligent people know news articles emerging from the courthouse will often contain unpleasant, disgusting situations. If you want to shield yourself from knowledge about such information, execute your adult powers to discriminate on what you read. But don't dive in, pretend you were forced to read something and then whine. That's weak.

Yeah, you're probably right about that but the picture makes him look like he's in piss poor shape anyway and besides the old owners for the guard company that I used to work for got busted for scamming the State of California for 10.5 Million in Workers Comp Fraud so it goes to show that the people that are supposed to be guarding us are criminals too. Criminal Cops Imagine that?? Criminal Cops in the prisons (as if they didn't belong there.) - Boy Howdy.

And I used to diseminate news for radio and news stations? But the courts are even corrupt so what are you to do Moxley? I got scammed and had to spend time in anger management classes for someone elses behaviors because he lied to the papramedics, and the courthouse judges know what they are doing behind the scenes because it's a money game to them. They got paid by the taxpayers to take the case even though the old man lied about me because he had alzheimers/dementia and was unable to answer them because he was stupid because of the disease/s he had. I had to pay for HIS behaviors. It's a scam being run out of the courthouse and the judges know about it. It's a racket. Nothing like doing a job for 13 years and not getting paid for it. I guess it's called volunteerism now, but isn't that SLAVE LABOR. Is it not true that they tell you "never volunteer for anything".

And on top of that you have the religionists trying to control your every move and behaviors when thiers are far worse than what you're doing.
