ROMA, Texas – Convicted child rapist Pedro Asuncion Ore-Quispe was arrested on June 14 near the southern border after he illegally entered the United States a second time.

The prison sentence, with six years determinate and eight years indeterminate, was issued for Pedro Asuncion Ore-Quispe by Judge Robert J. Elgee in Blaine County 5th District Court. In pronouncing his sentence, Elgee noted that Ore-Quispe’s crime was “not a one-time thing.” (credit: Idaho Department Corrections)

Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended him along with another convicted child sex offender.

At the station, criminal record checks identified Ore-Quispe, a 43-year-old Peruvian national, as a previously removed sex offender. He was arrested in 2013 by the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office in Idaho for multiple counts of sexual abuse of a child.

In 2015, Ore-Quispe was convicted of Felony Rape of a Child under 16 years old and sentenced to 6 to 14 years confinement. At the time, the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office and the Blaine County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, which jointly investigated the case, alleged that Ore-Quispe had a five-year relationship with the girl that started when she was 10.

An “immigration detainer” was issued against Ore-Quispe requiring that he was turned over to the federal agency once released from state custody. Thus, he was previously removed from the United States in 2020.

In 2015, Rangel pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of Indecency with a Child Sexual Contact, a 2nd degree felony, and sentenced to five years confinement. He was previously removed from the United States in 2018.
