Calexico, Calif. - U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the El Centro, Calif. sector, arrested a convicted sex offender Wednesday east of Calexico, Calif.

Jeffrey A. Calhoon, chief patrol agent of the El Centro sector, stated "Reducing crime in border communities is one facet of the Border Patrol's National Strategy. This is a perfect example of the Border Patrol taking one more dangerous criminal off the streets who is a threat to our border communities."

Border Patrol agents from the Calexico Station arrested the male Mexican national after he made an illegal entry into the United States. Record checks revealed the subject has a conviction for Rape by Force and Lewd Acts with a Child under fourteen years of age. The offender was sentenced to a five year prison term for the offense.

The subject is subject to prosecution for re-entry after deportation.
