(LEX 18)– Border patrol agents in California have arrested a convicted sex offender with ties to Kentucky, suspected of illegally entering the US.

34-year-old Wilfredo Perez-Aguilar was arrested Monday morning.

Officials say he is a Guatemalan national and a convicted sex offender in Kentucky.

Back in 2005, Perez-Aguilar was convicted of the sexual abuse and rape of a minor, and was sentenced to five years in prison.

He was deported in 2010 after serving his sentence.

Perez-Aguilar is currently being held in federal custody pending prosecution of re-entry and removal.
