A Mexican man was arrested by Border Patrol agents on Thursday, just six days following his deportation by the United States federal government.
Gabriel Liahut-Hernandez, 43, was detained near Mission, Texas.
The federal criminal complaint against Liahut revealed that he was convicted on October 13, 2015 of sexual battery and sentenced to 910 days in jail.
“Record checks revealed the Defendant was formally Deported/Excluded from the United States on April 7, 2017, through Hidalgo, Texas,” read the criminal complaint.
Six days after his deportation, Liahut apparently returned to the United States, and has been charged with illegal re-entry.
Liahut is in federal custody. No attorney is listed for him in court records.
