On Nov. 16, Juan Carlos Amigon, 26, pleaded guilty in Dutchess County Court (NY) to second-degree rape, and was sentenced by Judge Stephen L. Greller to four years in state prison.
The illegal alien was also ordered to pay $1,425 in fines.
Amigon was charged in March 2013, when the abuse was reported to police by the Dutchess County Child Advocacy Center.
The victim was a 13-year-old girl, who became pregnant as a result of the rape.
The girl has given birth to child, according to court documents.
The Poughkeepsie Journal reported:
Amigon’s attorney, Swathi Vardan, said her client is attending church services and working toward getting his GED while incarcerated and hopes to be there for the child he 'brought into this world.'"
"My client is aware of the consequences of his actions," she told the court.
Apparently, Vardan's words had some effect on Judge Greller who handed-down the light sentence.
Upon completion of his sentence, Amigon should be deported back to Mexico.
