ICE captured an illegal alien that was arrested for first-degree rape and indecent liberties with a minor charges.
Â U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested fugitive Oscar Pacheco-Leonardo, 33, a Honduran national, and repeat immigration violator during a targeted enforcement operation in Mecklenburg County August 9, nearly two months after the Mecklenburg County Sheriffâ€™s Office refused to honor an ICE detainer, or even notify ICE of the release, and instead released Mr. Pachecoâ€™s from local criminal custody following his arrest on first-degree rape and indecent liberties with a minor charges.
By releasing a previously deported alien facing serious criminal charges, Mecklenburg County chose to release a serious public safety threat onto the streets of Charlotte where he was free to potentially harm others for nearly two months until his capture by ICE.
Mr. Pacheco was previously removed from the U.S. to Honduras in July 2006, and he subsequently illegally reentered the U.S. after deportation, which is a felony act under federal law. After the resolution of any potential federal criminal charges, he is subject to removal again to Honduras.
Mr. Pacheco was arrested by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department for First Degree Rape and two counts of Indecent Liberties with a Child on June 14. ICE issued a detainer June 15, but the detainer was not honored, and Mr. Pacheco was instead released from Mecklenburg County custody June 16.
ICEâ€™s Charlotte Fugitive Operations Team (FUGOPS) located and arrested the man without incident August 9 and he remains in ICE custody.
