CHARLOTTE AMALIE — A St. Thomas man will be extradited to Oregon to face child rape charges, according to Lt. Dan Duncan, public information officer for the Corvallis, Oregon Police Department.
Jason D. Monigold, 42, of Estate Contant, was arrested by police at 9:35 a.m. Tuesday and charged with being a fugitive from justice.
Monigold was arrested pursuant to a warrant out of Corvallis for an incident that occurred on Oct. 13, according to the Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) arrest report. Bail was set at $410,000.
Duncan said that Monigold is one of three suspects who face criminal charges in a child sex abuse case in Oregon.
The Corvallis warrant outlines that Monigold is accused of three counts of third-degree rape, first-degree online sexual corruption of a child, luring a minor and unlawful delivery of marijuana to a minor.
Of course not everyone on social media was thrilled with our story, and one person, Paula Myles, said Monigold will eventually be proven innocent of the charges.
