Sexual Offender Finally Deported

Here’s a case, where a twice convicted sexual predator avoided deportation due to a lax immigration system.

Monfort, who entered the country illegally, attempted to gain immigration status in 1996 with a fraudulent marriage. However, on March 20, 2000, his conditional lawful permanent residency status was terminated and he was placed in removal proceedings. He failed to appear for a removal hearing July 5, 2000, in Newark, N.J., and was ordered removed in absentia by an immigration judge.

On Sept. 28, 2001, Monfort was convicted of second-degree assault and sex offense in Salisbury and was sentenced to 12 months in prison. On Feb. 13, 2004, he was again convicted of second-degree assault and sentenced to 10 years in prison. This time Monfort was found guilty of sexually assaulting a motorcycle accident victim, whom he was caring for as a nursing assistant at Salisbury’s Peninsula Regional Medical Center. Read more…

The system finally worked—after 18 years and two victims.
