Illegal Immigrant Sentenced To 401 Years in Prison For Violent Sex Crimes
Victims didn't want him deported because he could easily 'come back through border
An illegal immigrant in California has been s sentenced to 401 years in prison after he was found guilty of various violent sex crimes against a terrified family.
The jury convicted Macario Cerda, 39, of three counts of forcible rape against two victims from 2009 to 2013.
But Cerda's victims are so afraid of him they are advocating against deportation because they believe he will return to California.
The illegal alien was also convicted of one count of kidnapping to commit rape, seven counts of lewd acts upon a child under the age of 14, and one count of criminal threats, Tulare County District Attorney’s Office confirmed in a press release.
According to Prosecutors, Cerda was dating the victims' mother before kidnapping one victim and driving her a “remote location.”
He raped her before threatening her family.
The victim's mother called her cell phone during the rape and heard screaming for help before calling the police.
When Cerda got out of the car, the victim took the opportunity to escape by jumping into the driver’s seat and driving off.
Cerda has convictions for felony domestic violence and criminal threats against the victims' mother.
He was deported but returned five months later to commit more horrific crimes, Tulare County District Attorney’s Office says.
The news comes as a group of Angel families - American victims of crimes committed by illegal immigrants - stormed Nancy Pelosi's office, urging her to support President Trump's proposal for a wall to be built along the US Southern Border.
Rio Grande Sector Border Patrol Agent Chris Cabrera insists that more barriers are required or agents will be 'serious trouble,' according to Fox.
Police found that the victim had been previously been raped by Cerda in 2010 when she was a minor, whilst investigating the incident in 2013.
The victim then became pregnant and gave birth as a result of the rape, according to prosecutors.
The victims youngest sister also accused Cerda of rape and abuse and spoke at his sentencing asking the judge not deport him over the fear that he would return.
“Her capacity to find forgiveness for a man who so terrorized a family is nothing short of remarkable,” District Attorney Tim Ward said in a statement.
“but she also cautioned the judge to ‘never grant him any possibility at being deported because he has crawled his way back into the States illegally way too many times.’”
Incidents like this are giving Trump more strength to build a wall at the southern border.
As we reported last year, a poll revealed the majority of Americans back the Presidents' bid for a wall.
Following a joint ABC News / Washington Post poll, more people support the President's wall, something he has promised since even before his presidency.
