    I really can't believe this is happening to his family. There are people in this world that just don't care about how their lies are going to affect other peoples lives. This woman has accused Mr. Othon Barcenas because her husband is in trouble and now facing deportation.She believes that if they are victim's that the government will pardon her husband. All that Mr. Othon is guilty of is being at the wrong place at the wrong time. I was at the party where the mom is accusing him of doing things to her girls. I can say that he was never anywhere else but the living room with his wife and his family.. He never left, there's even a video and pictures of the whole party where you can see him being happy with his wife. He has girls of his own and they are very sad that this is happening to them. I just wanted to say something because when people are arrested that doesn't necessarily mean they are guilty. It only means someone accused them of something. He's still innocent until proven guil

    It is very simple folks. Mr. Barcenas is indeed locked away accused of a very bad crime. Until all the evidence is PRESENTED to those of Authority who were not present at the scene of the crime. Where the details can be picked apart by those individuals who have studied U.S. Laws in our educational system. Then in turn presented those laws back to the Judge& Jury in terms made understandable by your average Joe. Mr. Barcenas will then be prosecuted to full extend of the law or Mr. Barcenas will proven innocent of the crime still. “Losing his job, his family, his life style and anything else that matters all because a false actuation fueled by GREED.

    Okay look people, I personally know this man and he would never, I mean never would do thing kind of act. He is a family person and never separate or even try to abuse little children ! The childrens mom is such a lier, she have told people that she is doing this for money. Othon Barcenas is innocent. I'm so discusted on what people would do for money. So if anyone is reading this, this man is innocent. So please, don't let an innocent man suffer for this hideous crime he didn't do.

    If he's guilty, he doesnt deserve to be referred to as a "man"

    Every time a criminal does something hideously wrong, they are slapped on the wrist with a bond. They are then free to carry on with their criminal acts. When is the law going to wake up and keep these criminal locked up until trial.wildcat

    You think this guy could come up with the $150,000 in cash needed to make bond (bond is usually 15% cash-out). Doesn't look like he can come up with $150 let alone $150,000. Regardless, guilty until proven innocent with any charge containing the words "sex" and immediate guilt by the public if "sex and child" are in the charge.
