(Caught trying to re-enter the United States)...The arrest was made Wednesday near Andrade.

At around 6:00 pm Border Patrol agents discovered a group who had entered the US illegally. A records check conducted on the group found one individual, 37 year old Juan Nunez Tavarez, was a registered sex offender. In 2003 the Mexican National had been convicted of indecency with a child in El Paso Texas. He had been sentenced to two years in prison, before being deported back to his country of origin. It was also revealed the man had been deported four separate times. The 37 year old was taken into custody to face prosecution for re-entry of a convicted felon. If convicted he could face a lengthy jail sentence.
