man accused of raping 12-year-old girl in 1995, contacted victim through facebook in 2011

Last week in Los Angeles, a man was arrested on sexual assault charges stemming back in 1995, when he repeatedly raped a girl -- now in her 30s -- beginning when she was 12 years old: Vanna Hong Allegedly Raped 12 y.o. Girl From 1995-1996 and Then Facebooked Her in 2011.

44-year-old Vanna Hong was never charged in the 1990s, but authorities were there to greet him when he stopped off he plane from Boston last week, thinking he was coming back to resume his sexual relationship with the victim. The kicker? He got back in touch with her last year through Facebook:
Hong was 28 and lived in Rhode Island in 1995 when he visited Orange County and met the then-12-year-old girl, prosecutors said. He is accused of driving to California a few times to visit her and then flying round-trip to sexually assault her several more times during that year.

He took her to motels in Garden Grove and Anaheim several times for sexual purposes in 1995 and 1996, including at least once when he committed aggravated sexual assault, prosecutors said.

The molestations stopped in 1996, prosecutors said.

The victim became an adult, married a policeman and was living her life when Hong contacted her out of the blue on Facebook in January 2011 and suggested that they meet again to resume their sexual relationship, according to prosecutors.
Hong was charged with three counts of lewd acts upon a child younger than 14, one count of continuous sexual abuse, and one count of aggravated sexual assault of a child, with sentencing enhancement allegations for substantial sexual assault of a child. If convicted on all counts, he faces a maximum sentence of 15 years to life in prison.

Twelve f$%king years old. Somehow, prison doesn't seem like enough. More here: Man accused of contacting 1995 molest victim on Facebook. (Thanks, Yia.)
