ICE Arrests Brazilian Illegal Immigrant Indicted On Counts Of Aggravated Child Rape

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested an illegal alien from Brazil who was released after being indicted on multiple felony counts of aggravated child rape.

The 53-year-old Brazilian first came into the U.S. in 2001 and was authorized to stay until 2002 but did not leave and several years later in 2007, he was placed into removal proceedings but bonded out of court.

“On Feb. 12, 2008, a Department of Justice (DOJ) immigration judge in Boston granted the Brazilian national voluntary departure from the United States to Brazil. The DOJ immigration judge gave him until June 11, 2008, to depart the country,” ICE said in a statement. “He voluntarily departed the United States June 6, 2008. However, he unlawfully reentered the United States on an unknown date and at an unknown location without being inspected, admitted or paroled by a U.S. immigration official.”

According to ICE, the Everett Police Department arrested him in December 2021 on five counts of aggravated rape of a child by joint enterprise; one count of aggravated rape of a child-five year age difference; four counts of aggravated rape of a child-10 year age difference; one count of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14; and one count of obscene material to minor.

“This Brazilian national has been charged with some horrific and disturbing crimes,” ERO Boston Field Office Director Todd M. Lyons said.

“This is certainly not the type of person that we want interacting freely with the children of our neighborhoods. ERO Boston will continue to work tirelessly to arrest and remove noncitizen child sex predators from our New England communities.”
