I know we speak of mr. Contreras as a criminal & we should however, this is NOT the only molester in that town. I too was raped an molested many years ago. The man still lives there . We ALL know for a fact he molested girls and boys which lasted many many years. I was one of the boys then, my sister and cousin were just a couple of the girls. Karma however intervened...he is now living (if u can call it that) with a tbi he sustained many years ago. For those individuals mr contreras abused, it will get better! Do not let him win. You have the power to heal and grow. Seek those who are ready and there to help you. He, thank god lost all his power and in prison he will treated accordingly. The inmates do not take kindly to those who hurt children. My heart goes out to ALL victims of molestation. Let your voice be heard! Do not let familial obligations and intimidation keep this from continuing!

D’HANIS, Texas - A Medina County constable is making it his mission to find more victims who may have been abused at an unlicensed home-run daycare. Constable Stephen Duffy of Precinct 3 has been going down the only business strip in town, posting up these flyers that read,‘if you have ever taken your children to Sophie's at any time, give him a call’.

Constable Duffy said,“We'd like for the parents to come forward, so we can interview the children and find out if anything inappropriate happened to the children”.

Sixty six year old Agapito Contreras has already been arrested on one count of sexual assault of a child under the age of 14. The alleged abuse happened at a home in D’hanis that Contreras shared with his wife.

According to the constable,“it was a home, that was an unlicensed day care, and they had been keeping kids here for approximately five years”.

While the trailer once thrived as a place to care for children, the constable says it was also a thriving place for an alleged child predator.

“There were sometimes 5 or 6 children in the home at a time”.

But, now there are only signs of children who used to play at the home. Jack Armstrong noticed one of the flyers as he was leaving a restaurant in D’hanis.

He said,“I hadn't seen the flyers previously, but it's a shame things like that happen. It will probably be hard to find additional victims because children just keep that quiet”.

Not if Constable Duffy can help it. More victims have already come forward.

“Right now we have five confirmed children that were sexually abused”.

Since Contreras' arrest, the unlicensed day care has been shut. As for his wife who ran it, she remains under investigation by Child Protective Services. Agapito Contreras remains behind bars nearly two months after his arrest. His bond is set at $150,000.

Mr. duffy u had no right to put flyers like tat in town, he has been arrested and will be taken care of ur suppose to protect not shame the people of a little town tat everyone nows. Be happy he is behind bars and not hurtin anyone else, leave it alone if there is more children they will come forward but not the way u went about it. It is wrong what u did and how u went bout it, it's bad enough they feel bad of what happend and ur just rubbin it in instead of feeling their sympathy. How would u like it if u did tat and some cop posted a flyer like u did and shame ur family more then what they already have been. LEAVE IT ALONE

NO I HATE TO SAY HE HAS NOT DIED OF OLD AGE, I DONT THINK HE EVEN SERVED TIME FOR MOLESTING THOSE ELEMENTRY BOYS FROM DHANIS. AS A MATTER OF FACT I THINK HE STILL LIVES THERE IN TOWN. THEY WERE GOING TO DEPORT HIM BACK TO MEXICO FOR WHAT HAPPEND LONG AGO, BUT HE PAID THE BOYS WICH R NOW MEN TO LYE IN FRONT OF A JUDGE THAT THEY LIED LONG AGO. I DONT KNOW WHY THEY DID THAT THOU, THEY SHOULD HAVE LET HIS SORRY ASS GET DEPORTED BECUASE NOW CHEVO RIVERA IS STILL IN TOWN AND AROUND ALL OUR YOUNG CHILDREN. BUT I GUESS MONEY WAS MORE INPORTANT TO THEM BECAUSE THOSE MEN DONT HAVE CHILDREN TO WORRY ABOUT. THEY TURNED INTO SORRY ASS CRACK HEADS OF DHANIS, BUT WHAT CAN U EXPECT AFTER GOING WHAT THEY WENT THRU.
