(Convicted sex offender arrested)….Border Patrol agents made the arrest early Thursday morning.
Agents assigned to the Calexico Border Patrol Station arrested the previously deported convicted sex offender about 18 miles east of the Downtown Port. The 37 year old was arrested as he tried to illegally enter the United States. Agents later identified the man as Jose Adrian Sanchez Martinez, a citizen of Mexico. A criminal records check revealed Sanchez had been convicted of raping a child in the second degree in the state of Washington. He was previously removed from the United States and served a 17-month prison term in August of 2008 for failure to register as a sex offender. The Border Patrol says Sanchez is in custody and will be presented for criminal prosecution for re-entry after previously being removed.
