An illegal immigrant who was previously deported for raping a woman in Tennessee has been arrested after reentering the country illegally just six months later.
Javier Morales, 42, was deported in January after raping a woman in an apartment he was hired to paint, reported WVLT. The identity of the woman has not been made public.
Officials had placed warrants on Morales in the event that he return to the United States.
Morales was found and arrested at a residence in Knoxville where he was residing just six months after the alleged assault, the news outlet reported.
Morales is being held in the Knox County Jail and is facing charges of aggravated rape, according to jail records. His bond is set at $100,000.
Morales’s preliminary court hearing is scheduled for July 25, according to records.
Illegal Immigrant Accused of Impregnating 11-Year-Old Asked Judge to Deport Him
A 20-year-old illegal immigrant accused of impregnating an 11-year-old girl had asked a judge to deport him, according to reports.

The 20-year-old is currently being held in custody on a $150,000 bond for charges of aggravated assault and sexual conduct with a minor. During his first court appearance last May in Phoenix, Cobo-Perez asked the judge through a translator whether he could sign off on his voluntary exit from the United States, presumably so he would not have to deal with the situation, reported Fox 10.
Cobo-Perez’s relationship with the minor came to light when the girl’s mother became suspicious in November of last year after she saw a hickey on her daughter’s neck.
The 11-year-old subsequently confessed to her mother that she and Cobo-Perez were “in a relationship,” CBS5 reported. Cobo-Perez was then warned to stay away from the girl.
During a police interview six months ago, Cobo-Perez told investigators he was aware “their relationship was wrong” and promised to break it off, reported CBS5.
Illegal Immigrant Who Murdered Elderly Woman With Fire Extinguisher Gets 22 Years in Jail
An illegal immigrant who bludgeoned an 83-year-old woman to death with a fire extinguisher has been sentenced to 22 years behind bars.

Marroquin Gomez, now 34, had worked on the Colleys’ 300-acre estate in North Salem, New York, about five times but was not employed there at the time of the murder, Fox News reported. He went to the Colley’s home to ask for compensation for a chainsaw injury he sustained on the property that he said made it difficult for him to find work, and for a flight to Guatemala.
Marroquin Gomez asked to see Eugene Colley, the victim’s husband, but he was not there. The 83-year-old woman then offered him cab fare to go to her husband’s office in Croton Falls, according to court testimony. Marroquin Gomez then bludgeoned the elderly woman’s face with a fire extinguisher in the home, killing her. She was found in a pool of blood in the home’s laundry room.
Westchester County Court Judge George Fufidio handed down a sentence that was at the upper range of the punishment the prosecution had called for, noting that Gomez had “brutally and savagely” beaten Colley to death.
Marroquin Gomez will spend 22 years in prison.
