Wakefield was charged with violations of the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act of 2003, Anti-Child Abuse Act, and statutory rape, police records showed. Cabico said Wakefield was arrested in his hotel room in Davao City on October
The police brought the complainants, both girls aged 11 and 13, in Wakefield’s room to check if he was the person they alleged to have committed sexual molestations against them.
A week later, however, the Kiwi was given temporary liberty due to some technicalities.
