An American national accused of multiple sexual offences who was living illegally in Jamaica was captured during a joint police operation on November 15 and has since been deported back to the U.S.
Reports state that 71-year-old, Charles Manord Rainey, evaded the authorities for 11 years after he fled the U.S., after his being charged with sexual battery, child molestation, and aggravated child molestation. Rainey was accused of molesting a female minor under the age of 16 in Georgia in 2010, and a warrant for his arrest was issued in December 2011.
A joint operation between the Jamaican policing agencies: the Lotto Scam Task Force, the Fugitive Apprehension Team, the Counter Terrorism and Organized Crime Investigations Branch (C-TOC), and the United States Marshals Service (USMS) led to Rainey’s arrest last week in Norwood, St. James. The accused was held at the Barnett Police Station in Montego Bay, where he acknowledged his identity and admitted to overstaying the six-month visa, which he had been granted in 2011.
Rainey was deported on Friday, November 18, from Kingston and brought back to Georgia, where he is being held in the Paulding County Jail without bond. In a statement issued on their Facebook page on Monday, the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office said that the U.S. Marshals Service consistently attempts to develop and further enhance relationships with foreign nations.
“With no jurisdiction outside of the United States, the USMS is constantly networking to establish and improve relationships with foreign governments to enhance its ability to apprehend fugitives seeking refuge in foreign countries,” the statement noted.
The Paulding County Sheriff’s Office encouraged persons victimized by Rainey to contact detectives at (770) 443-3010 or send a tip via the free Paulding County Sheriff mobile app.
