Del Rio Border Patrol Arrests Sex Offender

Release Date: 
December 21, 2018

Honduran deported five years ago captured after crossing illegally

DEL RIO, Texas U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Eagle Pass Station arrested a convicted sex offender in Eagle Pass, Wednesday.


On Dec. 19, Eagle Pass agents arrested a 26 year old Honduran national after he illegally entered the United States. Record checks revealed he has a criminal history, including a conviction in 2012 for a sex offense against a child, fondling, in New Brunswick, New Jersey. The man was sentenced to serve 255 days in prison and is registered as a sex-offender. He was removed from the United States in 2013.


“Del Rio Sector is committed to ensuring the safety of our communities,” said Del Rio Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent Matthew J. Hudak. “Thanks to the hard work and diligence of our agents, another dangerous sex offender has been stopped from committing any more crimes in the United States.


As a convicted felon who has been previously removed from the United States, he faces a charge of 8 USC § 1326 – re-entry after deportation, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.


All individuals arrested by the U.S. Border Patrol undergo criminal history checks using biometrics to ensure those with criminal history or gang affiliation are positively identified.


The Del Rio Border Patrol Sector is part of the Joint Task Force-West South Texas Corridor, which leverages federal, state, and local resources to combat transnational criminal organizations. To report suspicious activity call the Del Rio Sector’s toll free number at 1-866-511-8727.
