A felony arrest warrant was issued for Jose Arturo Navarrete, Jr. back in June 2019.
Naverrete Jr. is being charged with four counts of lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14, three counts of a sex act with a child 10 years old or younger, and four counts of oral sex with a child 10 years old or younger, authorities said. The Sacramento County District Attorney’s office then issued a federal arrest warrant for fleeing to avoid prosecution in August.
Following his capture, Navarrete Jr. was deported back to the U.S. to face prosecution in Sacramento, the FBI said.
