PARKER COUNTY (CBS 11 NEWS) – “Pissed off. Angry. Mad.” That’s how the parents of a nine-year-old girl describe their emotions, after learning that the man accused of sexually molesting her has been deported four times and arrested 13 times.
Parker County deputies say Israel Andrade, 35, climbed through a bedroom window in the family’s home near Springtown and molested their daughter on Saturday morning.
The sheriff says when they found Andrade, he had a pair of the girl’s underwear, her mother’s underwear, and her father’s cell phone.
CBS 11’s Jack Fink talked to the girl’s mother who said, “You want to find the guy and hurt him yourself even though he’s been arrested, it doesn’t feel like … he’s just sitting in a jail cell, nothing’s happening to him, but my daughter is afraid to go into her own bedroom at night.” CBS 11 is not identifying the girl or her parents.
The parents say they’re daughter came in screaming to report a strange man had been inside and had touched her private area. The family says Andrade had been at a neighbor’s party the night before.
“He shouldn’t have been here. He came across 30 days ago, with all the influx of with youngsters from Central America,” said Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler.
Andrade is on an immigration hold, which means the feds are holding him without the ability for him to bond out.
For 11 years, federal agents have repeatedly deported Andrade to Mexico, but he keeps slipping back into the U-S.
Court records show federal agents arrested Andrade 13 times through October 2010. He voluntarily returned to Mexico 8 times and the U-S officially deported him to Mexico four times during that same time. Prosecutors charged him with illegal re-entry into the U-S.
Most recently, Andrade was released from federal prison and deported in September 2012.
Sheriff Fowler says the federal government must secure the border.
“It’s time for the federal government to step up. I’m tired of it. Law enforcement across this nation is tired of it,” said Fowler. “How many times is he going to be able to sneak back in? I hope this time he does something, and it makes you wonder how many times to little girls and boys he’s done this to?”
