Man Deported Multiple Times Faces Kansas Child Sex Charge

KSAL StaffOctober 9, 2016

Authorities say a man from Mexico who has been deported several times faces charges accusing him of raping a child in Kansas.

Tomas Martinez-Maldonado is jailed in Geary County on $100,000 bond on a charge of raping a child under the age of 14 last month. Public defender Cole Hawver declined to comment Friday. The public defender’s office was appointed to represent Martinez-Maldonado during his first appearance Thursday.

The Kansas Bureau of Information says he was taken into custody in late September in Missouri, where authorities alerted U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

ICE said Friday that Martinez-Maldonado has been deported back to Mexico 10 times since 2010. ICE also says he’s a priority for deportation when his Kansas case is completed.
