ORIGINAL STORY: SAN ANGELO — While facing three charges that involve blackmailing women, a San Angelo man has been charged with sexually assaulting another woman while out on bond, according to an arrest affidavit released Monday.

Police received a report of sexual assault that happened two years ago at a public park restroom. A woman told officers she responded to a San Angelo Swap and Sell advertisement on Facebook in March 2019, which involved taking measurements of a man’s body.

The woman, who was accompanied by a second person, arrived at a public playground on River Drive, where they met the man who had placed the ad. All three people entered a bathroom stall at the park. The man locked the door and began to inappropriately touch both the woman and the second person, according to the affidavit.

The woman told the man to stop, who didn’t, and threatened to tell the woman’s family that she had “begged for it” if she did not comply with his wishes, records state.

The woman told officers she “froze” and didn’t call for help out of fear that both she and the other person would be assaulted further, according to the affidavit.

Danny Wayne Juarez, 48, was arrested Friday, Oct. 29, 2021, on suspicion of sexual assault, which occurred while Juarez was out on bond for multiple counts of sexual coercion.

He remained in Tom Green County Detention Center in lieu of a $200,000 bond as of 12:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 1, 2021, according to online jail records. Should Juarez make bond, documents state he will not be allowed internet access and must not get in contact with the woman.

How pregnancy photos turned to blackmail

On Oct. 2, 2018, police searched a residence in the 3100 block of West Beauregard Avenue, where they believed a resident threatened to publish “intimate visual materials of a female,” records state.

Juarez created fake Facebook profiles and contacted women to offer “tattoo services as well as plaster-cast pregnancy belly, breasts, and genitalia molds, and cakes, in exchange for payment,” according to court documents.

Arrest affidavits detailed a woman responded to a cake advertisement for “Joe Custom Cakes” on Facebook Swap and Sell. She contacted the business, who told her about “belly cast molds for pregnant individuals.”

The woman was told someone would take photographs and measure her waist, and instructed her to meet them at a grocery store on Sherwood Way. The woman met a man, later identified as Juarez, who photographed her “nude from the waist up,” records state.

The woman was messaged later by someone “requesting money or (they were) going to release the (nude) photographs to the public,” according to court documents.

Another woman reported that she let Juarez photograph “her naked breasts and nipples” in exchange for money on condition the photos would remain private, according to the affidavit.

Juarez, 44 at the time, was booked into Tom Green County Jail in October 2018, and released the following day on a $10,000 bond, according to online jail records.

In March 2019, Juarez was indicted on three counts of sexual coercion, which are state jail felonies punishable by up to 2 years in jail each.

Online court records show Juarez is scheduled for a plea hearing in November.
