Hampstead man pleads guilty to sex crimes with disabled minor

READ MORE:

PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- A Hampstead man could be deported after pleading guilty to sex crimes against a disabled child.

The District Attorney's Office says Victor Saravia Vasquez, 40, pleaded guilty to two counts of indecent liberties with a child and one count of misdemeanor secret peeping. A judge sentenced him to two consecutive sentences of 13-16 months in prison. Vasquez must also register as sex offender for 30 years and may be deported as a result of this conviction.

Prosecutors say in the fall of 2010 and the winter of 2011, Vasquez lived with the victim's family and shared a bedroom with the victim. The victim, who is developmentally disabled, was 15 years old when Vasquez first began forcing him to perform oral sex and later anal sex. The DA says he intimidated the victim and made him promise not to disclose the abuse.

Illegal Alien Vaszquez - Sexual Predator

The question is,

"Who hired Vasquez?"

The recently passed H786 Illegal Alien Jobs Act just opened up a 9 mos. window for 'seasonal labor' hiring and NO E Verify legal hiring document checks.

Vasquez? Perfect candidate. He's been employed by someone for a few years now. Why?

This illegal alien perpetrator bypassed Federal background checks. Is he even who he claims to be? What was his record in his home country?

Cut the JOBS magnet and the illegal alien population in NC will reduce itself. Throw in a driver's license which is under review at the NCGA right now, INCREASE the illegal population.

Brunswick County State Senator Bill Rabun voted YES on this bill.

May be deported?

May be deported? This piece of crap should not be allowed to stay in this country for the tax payers to feed, clothe, and entertain him for 13-16 months. What kind of laws do we have that would give this jerk only 13-16 months for such a heinous crime?

People like him should get a

People like him should get a needle in the arm. And that's too good for him.

My guess is that Vasquez isn't a "Hampstead man", he's an...

..illegal mexican! So he was allowed to sneak in here to sexually molest a 15 yr. old disabled boy?
Castrate him, remove any other appendages, tape him up and shove his sorry, perverted @$$ back where he came from!!! 13-16 months is rediculous for the magnitude of this sexual crime against a minor!

Don't deport

Just put a .45 round in his head.

.45 sure would be cheaper!

While I somewhat agree with

While I somewhat agree with the .45 idea, the story says he shared a room with the victim. What kind of parents would let a disabled child be put into a potential situation like that? What ever happened to parental responsibility? They should be charged, as well.

Man Pleads Guilty to sex crimes involiving a disabled minor

First and foremost as the mother of the victim I want to thank all of you who were outraged at the sentencing of Mr. Victor Saravia Vasquez. I also want to clear up some misconceptions that were made because the whole story was not released. First of all Mr. Vasquez is not from Mexico and was here on a permanent green card for over 10 years. He did work and he paid taxes like any other citizen. He was with our family for 5 years and actually helped with the care of the children. At no time did we have any hint of what he was doing until my son was asked during some testing, had anything had ever occurred with anyone.

The only reason Mr. Vasquez shared a room with my son was because my son requires 24 hour supervision when on home visits. As he became a teen it did not seam appropriate for me as his mother to stay in the same room as her pubescent son. There was no reason to think that someone who had act as a mentor and father would suddenly turn predator.

Regardless of what you think of me as a mother there is nothing anyone can say or do to me that is worse than what I have thought about myself. I am an educated professional woman who if you knew me would know that I would and have done anything and everything to keep my children safe. At what point do you decide you no longer trust someone and they turn to a pervert? I believe in the good of people with no evidence to the contrary. Has your child ever slept over at a friends house that you have know the parents less than 5 years? Or what about a week at summer camp? It is no different. Just hold your children tight and pray that when you talk to them about good touch and bad touch that they understand BAD touch is BAD no mater who is doing it to them, child or adult.

What really should be the issue here is how short the sentence is Mr. Vasquez received. Worse yet the judge is not in the position to have him deported. Mr. Vasquez has been in Pender county jail for 14 months. That means he has only 15 months more to serve! He could have received 10 years for this plea which would have been significantly less time than one single incident if we had pushed forward and gone to trial. It was in the best interest of my son and our family for this to be over and for my son not to testify. The judge and court system gave Mr. Vasquez a slap on the wrist. If you want to do anything to legally deport Victor Saravia Vasquez from this country write to your Senators, Congressman or the INS. Please help me make sure that INS is waiting to deport Mr. Vasquez back to Guatemala, never to return as soon as he steps out of jail.

I sincerely pray that none of you or your friends ever have to live through the nightmare that my family has gone though over the last 14 months. This will go with my family and I for life...pray for us as well.

God bless your son and your

God bless your son and your family. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
