Illegal Alien Sex Offender Caught in Alabama, Charged Under New Law
"On Wednesday morning, Marshall County sheriff's deputies arrested Juan Vargas, 28, of Huntsville, on a warrant for sexual abuse of a child under the age of 12, according to Sheriff Scott Walls. When deputies checked on Vargas' immigration status, it was learned that he is in the United States illegally from his native country of Guatemala," the Gadsen Times writes.
"Vargas is being held in the Marshall County Jail. In addition to the sexual abuse charge, he is being charged with willful failure to carry alien registration under Alabama's new immigration law. An ICE detainer also has been placed."
