An illegal alien who has been deported from the United States ten times has been convicted of re-entering the U.S. after allegedly raping a woman in North Carolina.
Jose Alfonso Rodriguez-Garcia, a 54-year-old illegal alien from El Salvador, was sentenced to 115 months in prison after being arrested following rape accusations and repeatedly re-entering the U.S. despite having a long record of committing felonies.
U.S. Attorney Robert Higdon Jr. said in a statement:
For years, Jose Alfonso Rodriguez-Garcia disregarded the laws of the United States having been previously deported ten times and racking up conviction after convictions including assault and narcotics offenses. With this 115-month sentence, the American citizens, and in particular those of the Eastern District, are safer today because it has put a stop to Rodriguez-Garcia’s treating our borders as a revolving door.
Rodriguez-Garcia had previously been charged and convicted for:
- Receiving stolen property
- Grand theft from a person
- Attempt to distribute a controlled substance
- Resisting public officer
- Possession of controlled substances
- Auto theft
- Evading arrest
- Assault on a female
- Deported alien found in the United States
- Illegal reentry of a previously deported alien
- Illegal reentry by a previously deported aggravated felon
The illegal alien had pled guilty to re-entering the U.S. as a convicted felon. Subsequently, Rodriguez-Garcia was arrested after being found in Wake County, North Carolina for allegedly raping a woman.
