BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- An illegal immigrant has pleaded guilty to raping a six-year-old Shallotte girl in 2010. Luis Arturo Sanchez, 23, entered a guilty plea this afternoon in Brunswick County Superior Court to first degree rape.

Prosecutors say at the time of the crime, Sanchez was in the United States illegally. Assistant District Attorney Meredith Everhart said in court during the plea that Sanchez had confessed to engaging in intercourse with the child on one occasion and to attempting sexual intercourse with her on at least two other occasions.

Judge Ola Lewis sentenced Sanchez to 12 to 15 years in prison. Sanchez will also be required to complete sex offender treatment in prison, register as a sex offender and be subject to GPS satellite monitoring for the rest of his natural life.

As a result of his status as an illegal alien, the United States Office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has placed an immigration detainer on Sanchez, which requires his deportation from the United States, but that will only occur after he has served his entire active prison sentence in the United States.

terrible

It's true he does deserves to serve a lifetime in jail, but not because he is illegal in the u.s means. That. Every. Illegal person who comes to the u.s is a rapist or. murder, some come to work hard and have a better life !!I known friends who were raped and murder by american people. Too so being illegal in the state doesn't mean you're a criminal.how ever I do think every rapist or murders deserve d the worst !!!!

Ha!

Fat lot of good his deportation will do. He got in this country illegally to begin with. First chance he gets, he'll cut off that GPS monitor and high tail it back to the good life in the good ole USA.

illegal Aliens

On average 9,125 Americans lose their life to illegal alien invaders each year! That's right, not just last year, every year.

Vote for the liberal Democrats who all want open borders and see what happens to America!

take notice law makers..

take notice law makers.. everyone wants baby rapers to either NEVER get out of prison or DIE.

REALLY?

I'd really like to meet the people who make these laws up in our country because i'd give anything to tell them to take it and shuv it up there ASS. You get punished and sit hard time for DRUGS but you RAPE a child or MURDER someone oh well just do a few and then get some treatment? That's SICK!

I hope that everyone that

I hope that everyone that thinks its ok for illegals to be here reads this. If our great county would start enforcing the laws that it should have many years ago then this wouldn’t have happened. I don’t have an objection to people from other countries being here LEGALLY the way most of people’s ancestors came here. I have documented proof that my ancestors came here legally. If they were to know how this government is allowing illegal immigration (by not aggressively pursuing illegals) this is a slap in the face of all of the ones that came here THE RIGHT WAY!

illegal immigrant

Now we have to pay for him to be here in Jail. I hope they take good care of him in prison.

Illegal Monster

This is the Fault of the Federal Government not enforcing the immigration laws. I hope every state enacts laws like in AZ,GA, and AL.
The states have to protect there children from these degenerates.
What about his Illegal Family? Well we should sent the whole lot back now too..

He needs to be

He needs to be killed...slowly...and then they need to go after the company who hired him and made it possible for him to survive here until he could ruin this child's life. Find out where he worked. The company ultimately shares responsibility for this.

He doesn't deserve to live!

So sad for this little girl.

And to think that for the next 12-15 years he will have comfortable living quarters and three hot meals a day. Also, exercise equipment and color TV to watch. Not to mention getting an education at no cost to him. He will probably have a better life in prison than he had on the street. All this at the taxpayer's expense.

It's no wonder they don't mind going back to prison once they get out.

measuring tape...

use the measuring tape & the freak is probably about the same height as the toddler, so maybe thats why he was attracted. hope his dwarf animal a** dies slow in prison..

mexican

This makes me feel ill. A tiny little girl was forced to have sex. 12-15 years? If it was my Grand daughter he would be rotting in the ground. Sometimes we have to do what the state won't.

What

He got 12-15 years for raping and ruining the life of a 6 year old girl. You get more if you kill a bald eagle. And the fact that he was here illegally just makes me sick to my stomach.

When and if he gets out - just remember a child molester is the lowest of the low in prisont (they have their own codes there and may deal with him), then he will be deported. I guess he should consider himself lucky. The parent or parents of the child could have performed their own kind of justice. I would have been tempted to.
