BP agents apprehend 3 with sex-crime convictions

Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended three Mexican nationals with sex-crime convictions in separate incidents since Tuesday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said.

Border Patrol agents from the Tucson Station arrested a man from Michoacán, Mexico, on Tuesday for illegally entering the United States. During processing, agents found the man had a 2007 conviction for spousal rape out of Monterey, Calif., the Border Patrol said.

Early Wednesday, Nogales Station agents apprehended a man from Nayarit, Mexico, who entered the country illegally and was found to have a 1998 conviction in Phoenix for sexual conduct with a female minor, the Border Patrol said.

Also on Wednesday, Nogales Station agents apprehended a man from Veracruz, Mexico, who was convicted in 2011 for child molestation and voyeurism in Franklin County, Wash., the Border Patrol said.

The men were held for federal prosecution, the Border Patrol said.
