Uvalde Agents Arrest Previously Deported Sex Offender

Release Date

DEL RIO, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to Del Rio Sector’s Uvalde Station arrested a convicted sex offender shortly after he illegally entered the United States, March 22.

At approximately 5 p.m., agents responded to a request for assistance at traffic stop near Sabinal. Upon arrival, agents identified a smuggling event, took custody of all the smuggled migrants, and transported them to the Eagle Pass Station. During processing, record checks revealed that one of the subjects, a Mexican National, was previously convicted for aggravated sexual assault of a child in Galveston and sentenced to five years confinement. He was most recently removed from the United States in January.

As a convicted felon, he faces a charge of 8 USC § 1326 – Re-entry after Deportation, which carries a maximum sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

All subjects are processed in accordance with U.S. Customs and Border Protection policies.

To report suspicious activity, call the Del Rio Sector’s toll-free number at 1-866-511-8727.
