A man convicted of raping a minor has been transferred out of the Guam Department of Corrections and into the custody of U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement officials for deportation.
Juan J. Torres was convicted in 2013 for third-degree criminal sexual conduct as a second-degree felony. He was charged with 4 counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct as a second-degree felony; 2 counts of assault with intent to commit criminal sexual conduct as a third-degree felony; and 2 counts of felonious restraint as a third-degree felony. He would be eligible for parole next year and would have been released back on to the streets of Guam in three years.
A citizen of Peru, Torres was identified by U.S. immigrations officials as having committed a deportable crime and was flagged with a detainer. Torres told DOC officers that he wanted to volunteer for deportation and didn’t intend to return to Guam.
Governor Calvo commuted Torres’ sentence, which allowed for his transfer from DOC to U.S. immigrations. Once he is deported, not only will he be unable to hurt anyone else on Guam, his name will be added to a federal list so he will not be able to return to the U.S.
The Office of the Attorney General of Guam assisted in informing the victim’s family.
That now makes 11 criminals who are no longer living at DOC at taxpayers’ expense (to the tune of $119 a day per person or more than $42,300 per year per person).
