Border Patrol agents arrest Guatemalan sex offender near Sullivan City
Border Patrol agents arrested a Guatemalan sex offender Thursday near Sullivan City.
Agents arrested Byron Estuardo Lucero, 34, a Guatemalan citizen — and moderate-risk sex offender registered with the Texas Department of Public Safety.
"Record checks revealed the Defendant was formally Deported/Excluded from the United States on December 7, 2011, through Houston, Texas," according to the federal criminal complaint against him.
Estuardo was convicted of sexual assault of a child on Sept. 23, 2009, according to Department of Public Safety records. A judge sentenced him to three years probation.
He's now charged with illegal re-entry.
Court records don't list an attorney for Estuardo, who couldn't be reached for comment.
