U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the El Centro Sector arrested an illegal alien Monday afternoon with prior convictions for sexual offenses.
Agents assigned to the El Centro Border Patrol Station arrested a 46-year-old male, a citizen of Mexico, after he illegally entered the United States approximately 29 miles west of the Calexico Port of Entry. Agents placed the man under arrest and transported him to the El Centro Centralized Processing Center for further processing.
Record checks revealed that in 2007, the man was convicted in Hemet, California, of rape, sodomy, and oral copulation; all with a person under the age of 18. The man was subsequently sentenced to over nine years in prison for his crimes.
Additionally, the man was previously removed from the United States to Mexico in 2014.
As a convicted felon, the subject faces a charge of 8 USC § 1326 – Re-entry After Deportation, which carries a maximum sentence of up to 20 years in prison.
In fiscal year 2021, which began Oct. 1, 2020, El Centro Sector Border Patrol agents arrested and/or removed 17 individuals either convicted or wanted on sexual offense charges.
