Default Gook Facebook friends woman he raped when she was twelve


As any Facebook member knows, friend requests from long-lost
acquaintances roll in all the time, but the one an Orange County woman
in her 30s received in January 2011 really stood out.

It was from a man who is alleged to have regularly flown across the
country to rape her beginning when she was 12 years old.

When Vanna Hong, 44, of Boston, Mass., stepped off a plane at Los
Angeles International Airport on Friday, he believed he was about to
meet the woman to re-start their relationship, according to a statement
from the Orange County District Attorney's office (OCDA).

Instead, Hong found himself in the waiting arms of law enforcement
officers. He was being held in lieu of $1 million bail pending a
scheduled arraignment hearing today.

The OCDA alleges the creepy relationship began in January 1995, when
Hong was 28. He met the then-12-year-old on a visit to Orange County
from Rhode Island, and he would allegedly go on to make several trips
back to sexually assault the girl that year.

Hong is further accused of:

Having unlawful sexual intercourse with the girl in a Garden Grove
motel between January-February 1995;

Engaging in unlawful sexual intercourse, oral copulation and
digital penetration with the girl at The Alamo Inn in Anaheim several
times between March 1, 1995, and Feb. 29, 1996;

Forcibly raping the girl between March 1-Sept. 30, 1996.

Now a grown woman married to a law enforcement officer, the victim did
not report the sexual assaults for months after Hong is accused of
contacting her on Facebook at the beginning of last year. He is accused
of wanting to visit and continue their sexual relationship, despite
knowing the woman is married.

The woman contacted law enforcement on Aug. 17, 2011, about the sexual
assaults she claims took place when she was a child. An investigation
was launched that culminated in Hong's arrest at LAX last week.

The OCDA explains how he could face charges so many years after the
reported crimes: "The People are able to file this case beyond the
statute of limitations based on clear and convincing admissible evidence
that corroborates the victim's allegations."

Hong is charged with three felony counts of lewd acts upon a child under
14, one felony count of continuous sexual abuse, and one felony count of
aggravated sexual assault of a child, with sentencing enhancement
allegations for substantial sexual assault of a child.

Conviction could send Hong to state prison for 15 years to life.
