Previously Deported Rapist Re-Arrested In Texas

HIDALGO COUNTY, TX (CBS 4 News) – Border Patrol agents arrested a Guatemalan sex offender Thursday near Hidalgo.

Agents arrested Jorge Anthony Galindo-Rodas, 37, a citizen of Guatemala — and a sex offender registered with the California Department of Justice.

On June 4, 2010, Galindo was convicted of rape by force or fear, according to the criminal complaint.

His last known address was in Compton, California, according to the state Department of Justice.

“The defendant claims to have illegally entered the United States on October 18, 2016, near Pharr, Texas,” according to the criminal complaint. “Record checks revealed the defendant was formally deported/excluded from the United States on November 21, 2012, through Phoenix, Arizona.”

Agents charged Galindo with illegal re-entry.

Court records don’t list an attorney for Galindo, who remains in federal custody.
