An illegal immigrant living in Pennsylvania is accused of sexually-assaulting a 12-year-old girl.
The Bensalem Township Police Department said Jorge Luis Ramirez, 33, an illegal immigrant from Honduras, sexually assaulted the girl more than a dozen times, CBS Philadelphia reported.
Police started an investigation when the girl’s parents reported that their daughter was being sexually assaulted by Ramirez while she attended services at Redemption Episcopal Church in Southampton.
Ramirez has been charged with aggravated indecent assault of a child, indecent assault of a child, corruption of minors, and unlawful contact with a minor.
Ramirez is currently being held at the county jail on $1 million bond.
Other cases of illegal immigrants caught sexually assaulting girls and women have made headlines this year.

Police arrested an illegal immigrant for allegedly raping an 11-year-old girl in Iowa in June and an illegal immigrant was also arrested in Oklahoma on rape and burglary charges that same month for attacking a woman sleeping in her apartment.
