Previously Deported Criminal Sex Offender Arrested

TUCSON, Ariz. - Brian A. Terry Station Border Patrol agents arrested, 25-year-old Jose Hernandez-Martinez, a previously deported Mexican national late Tuesday afternoon after he re-entered the U.S. illegally east of Naco.

Agents learned during records checks that the subject was convicted in Windom, Minnesota, for criminal sexual conduct in 2011 and sentenced to one year of confinement.

Hernandez will remain in federal custody to face charges for re-entering the U.S. as an aggravated felon.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials welcome assistance from the community. Citizens can report suspicious activity to the Border Patrol and remain anonymous by calling 1-877-872-7435 toll free.
