Illegal Immigrant Accused Of Rape On The Run
A previously reported illegal immigrant is on the run after a judge in Boston decided not to detain the illegal. The man posed as an Uber driver and lied about his name. He allegedly raped a woman who got into his vehicle.
The woman was picked up while using the mobile ride app last September and driven to a location she didn’t request. He then raped her and dropped her off at Boston College where she was able to flag down police.
The man named Luis Baez is now on the run. ICE agents are now hunting down the man who has now disappeared.
The state judge put the man on a light bail rather than deciding to detain him.
Fox News reports:
“ICE agents are now trying to locate Baez, who was released on $2,500 bail by Newton District Court Judge Mary Beth Heffernan. He disappeared before ICE could file a detainer to keep him in custody, the Herald reported.”
“Baez, originally from the Dominican Republic, was previously deported and that fact was reportedly brought up to Heffernan by prosecutors, who wanted a $100,000 bail and GPS monitoring to ensure he would not flee.”
Baez Related To Other Felonies As Well
“Breitbart Texas spoke with ICE Public Affairs Officer Shawn Neudauer about the judge setting the low bail. ‘You mean the one who released him on purpose, knowing we were coming for him?’ Neudauer expressed. He confirmed that ICE officials were working hard to confirm Baez’s identity prior to his release. Baez refused to cooperate with police during his fingerprinting process making positive identification more time-consuming, Neudauer said.”
“ICE confirmed that Enforcement Removal Officers deported Baez in 2010 following two Class A felony convictions. A court convicted Baez in 2004 on an assault and battery with a dangerous weapon charge, and in 2003 for a felony possession of a controlled substance charge.”
