A convicted rapist is back in custody after authorities say he tried to re-enter the United States illegally.

Agents say 36-year-old Gustavo Hurtado-Juarez was crossing the Rio Grande River, when he was arrested.

“Del Rio Sector personnel are relentless in their vigilance to ensure the safety of our citizens and security of our nation,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Felix Chavez. “Because of their efforts, a dangerous criminal was stopped from gaining further access to American communities.”

Hurtado-Juarez is a Mexican citizen who had been removed from the U.S. before.

If convicted of illegally re-entering the U.S., he could spend up to twenty years in prison.
