Man wanted on child molestation, human trafficking charges captured in Texas

A man wanted on child molestation and human trafficking charges in Hall County was extradited this week to face charges in Georgia, authorities said. 

Marcos Jose-Jose, 53, was booked into the Hall County jail Sunday morning after he was apprehended in Texas, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.

Jose-Jose was arrested in June 2016 after being indicted on charges of child molestation and trafficking a person for sexual servitude, said Lt. Scott Ware of the Hall County Sheriff’s Office.

He also has an immigration hold from U.S. Customs and Enforcement agents, authorities said.

Police have not released details of Jose-Jose’s case, and repeated attempts to reach the Hall County District Attorney’s Office for additional information were unsuccessful.

An ICE spokesman also declined to provide specifics about the case until Jose-Jose is turned over to federal immigration officials.

Jose-Jose remains in jail without bond.
