Authorities have arrested and indicted a pair of Mexican nationals with several charges after they allegedly raped young children.
Fernando Limon, 23, along with his brother Ramiro Limon, 28, are charged with four counts of child rape each and were arrested in Tennessee on September 20 “without incident,” according to the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office.
“There have been numerous challenges given the magnitude and nature of the case because of additional time, resources and effort required,” one detective familiar with the case said, adding that the victims were “considerably younger” than 13-years-old. Sheriff Robert Bryan said the case “has been a particularly difficult” one, thanks to “the language barriers and cultural differences.”
Immigration holds have been placed on the suspects and bond is set at $150,000. They face deportation and as much as 25 years in prison on each count of child rape.
