Hampstead man pleads guilty to sex crimes with disabled minor


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.
