Border Patrol Agents arrest convicted sex offender

Posted: Updated:
Casa Grande -

Border Patrol agents from the Casa Grande Station arrested a 35-year-old Mexican man Friday near Sells, and later learned he been convicted in California for sex crimes against a minor.
Agents arrested Aaron Sarmiento-Sanchez for being in the United State illegally and, during processing, found he was arrested on June 7, 2006, by the Salinas County Sheriff's Office on two counts of "lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14 years of age." 
He was sentenced to six years imprisonment and a fine, with an additional sentence of two consecutive years.
On April 8, 2013, Sarmiento was removed from the United States. He now faces prosecution for criminal illegal re-entry into the U.S.
Federal law allows the Border Patrol to charge individuals by complaint, a method that allows the filing of charges for criminal activity without inferring guilt. An individual is presumed innocent unless and until competent evidence is presented to a jury that establishes guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
