Last month, police making a routine traffic stop in Escondido, CA, discovered that the 29-year-old passenger was Jesus Armando Flores-Trujillo – a convicted rapist who has been deported three times. Flores-Trujillo was first convicted of rape back in 2001 and was deported back to Mexico after finishing his sentence in 2010.
Despite his felony status (and long criminal history in our country which includes various drug charges) and the fact that he is an illegal immigrant, Flores-Trujillo was working in the Escondido area at the time of his arrest. The driver of the vehicle was also determined to be in the country illegally and was wanted on a DUI warrant. Both the driver and Flores-Trujillo are being held on Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainers.
