Illegal immigrant sentenced to 60 years for sexual assault of 14-year-old


A man in the U.S. illegally will be 100 years old before getting out of prison after sentencing on a sexual assault charge in Falls County Thursday.

Raphael Suarez, 48, was found guilty by an 82nd District Court jury of continuous sexual assault of a child. He opted to be sentenced by the judge instead of the jury.

Judge Robert Stem gave Suarez a sentence of 60 years with no parole. The 14-year-old victim had been assaulted numerous times between August 2012 and February 2013.

Suarez had previously been convicted of sexual assault 21 years ago, and was in the country illegally at that time. Between that charge and Thursday's sentence, federal records show he had been deported twice and had illegally returned to the country twice after the deportations.
