“Undocumented guest” Jonathan Alcantara Romero was facing a simple I.C.E. detainer. Now he’s also facing two felony charges of sex abuse in Oregon, involving a 14 year old victim.
A 26-year-old man in federal immigration custody now faces sex abuse charges in Yamhill County, sheriff’s officials said Wednesday.
Jonathan Alcantara Romero of Dayton was arraigned Wednesday on charges of first-degree sex abuse and first-degree attempted sex abuse, Yamhill sheriff’s spokesman Capt. Chris Ray said.
Deputies say Romero abused a 14-year-old in August 2016.
After a six-week investigation, deputies discovered Romero was in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody in Tacoma pending deportation.
Romero is in concurrent custody with the immigration agency at the Yamhill County jail, Ray said.
You can see the indictment here. His bond is currently set at $150,000, which, in Oregon, means he’s out on 10% of that.
Alcantara Romero is currently on probation stemming from a 2016 case where he plead guilty to two counts of Fourth Degree Assault and DUII, though the original indictment listed two counts of Third Degree Assault, Reckless Driving, and Recklessly Endangering Another Person, along with the DUII.
The 2016 incident was apparently so gruesome that the state motioned to seal the medical records of two victims that were Life Flighted to hospital.
For that, Alcantara Romero was sentenced to a grand total of 144 hours in county jail and two years probation, along with $1655 in fines and restitution. One would think that the probation on that case would now be revoked, as part of the standard terms of probation are to not engage in further criminal activity.
This comes just five weeks after 20-time deportee Sergio Martinez was arrested after allegedly robbing and raping two women in Portland, Oregon.
