Last week, police in Stamford arrested Hector Valle, 48, after they discovered the Guatemalan national had returned to the United States, a violation of his probation.
In 2006, Valle was convicted of third-degree sexual assault and illegal sexual contact with a victim under the age of 16. He was sentenced to three years in prison, a seven-year suspended sentence and 10 years of probation.
He was deported back to Guatemala in 2009.
The Stamford Advocate reported:
At his arraignment at state Superior Court in Stamford on Wednesday, Judge Thomas Colin raised Valle's bond to $150,000 and assigned him a public defender. Valle made a pro-forma not-guilty plea to violation of probation, and Colin scheduled him to return to court on March 20.
Valle is currently being held at the Bridgeport Correctional Center on an ICE detainer.
This case not only demonstrates how pointless deportations have become under an administration which refuses to secure our border with Mexico, but the danger in which this lawless policy places our children as well.
