Border Patrol apprehended another Central American convicted sex offender attempting to illegally enter the U.S. through the southern border this week, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Osmar D. Acevedo, a Guatemalan national, was apprehended Monday 29 miles west of Calexico, California, and was discovered by agents to be a sex offender sentenced to three years in prison.
“Acevedo was convicted as a felon in 2008 for acts with a child: age specific, out of Los Angeles, and sentenced to serve three years in prison. Acevedo also has immigration convictions for illegal entry after being previously removed,” CBP said in its announcement.
“Acevedo is in Border Patrol custody and will be processed and prosecuted for re-entry after previously being deported,” it added.
Earlier this week CBP announced two other apprehensions this month of illegal immigrants convicted of sex offenses against minors – one from El Salvador and one from Honduras.
