Post Star

HEBRON, NY ? An illegal immigrant from Mexico was arrested Friday night on charges he raped a teenage girl in Hebron, and police said the man may face charges in another state as well.

Jose DeLaCruz, 21, was charged with first-degree rape, a felony, and endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor for allegedly forcing the girl to have sex earlier this year, according to Washington County Sheriff?s Investigator Bruce Hamilton. He?s also accused of threatening her with harm if she told anyone, Hamilton said.

DeLaCruz works as a laborer at an area farm and is believed to have had a sexual relationship with the girl for several years, including during a time when she lived outside the area, police said. It appears he followed the girl and her family to Hebron, authorities said.

Hamilton said he plans to notify police in the area from which the family moved for possible prosecution there as well. The Post-Star is not identifying where the family moved from to protect the girl?s identity.

“This has been going on for about five years, and he?s been here for several years,” Hamilton said.

The girl disclosed the allegations recently to a counselor with whom she had been working, he said.

DelaCruz has apparently been in the country since around 2000 and has not had any prior arrests or apparent contact with immigration officials, Hamilton said.

    Yeah Ok but what about what he did back in mexico or what ever rock he crawled out from under? Did he relocate his crime spree to the U.S because his home country was on to him, or did that country deport him to the U.S because of his habitual deviant acts there? As far as I am concerned these foreign unknown Nationals who victimize Americans should be hung until dead. It is terrorism in the very meaning of the word.
