Northeast Oklahoma man indicted by Federal Grand Jury

Several people are charged in Northeast Oklahoma in indictments handed down by a March Federal Grand Jury.

One of those is 29-year-old Jonathan Eliezer Miranda Juarez from Commerce.

Juarez is charged with Transportation of a Minor with Intent to Engage in Criminal Sexual Activity; Coercion and Enticement of a Minor.

Juarez is charged with transporting a minor victim with intent to engage in sexual activity Aug. 2023.

He is further charged with knowingly persuading and coercing a minor victim from Aug. 2020 through Aug. 2023.

The Homeland Security Investigations, Indiana Delphi Police Department, Commerce Police Department, Oklahoma Highway Patrol, and Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation are the investigative agencies.

The return of an indictment is a method of informing a defendant of alleged violations of federal law, which must be proven in a court of law beyond a reasonable doubt to overcome a defendant’s presumption of innocence.
