CALEXICO, Calif. (KYMA, KECY) - Border Patrol agents arrested a sex offender after illegally entering the U.S. last Sunday morning.
Agents say they saw the man entering a mile west of the Calexico Port of Entry. They took him to the nearest station for further processing.
Record checks revealed the 38-year-old man from Mexico was previously convicted in 2011 for sexual intercourse with a minor out of Santa Barbara, Calif. A judge sentenced him to 3 years probation and one day in jail.
In 2012, he was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon and served seven years for that crime.
Agents said they have now removed 10 people either convicted or wanted on sexual offense charges.
