On Sept. 20, 2013, Ocon-Marin pleaded guilty to illegally reentering the United States.

Ocon-Marin was born in Mexico and was admitted into the United States as a lawful permanent resident as the child of a U.S. citizen. According to court documents, Ocon-Marin was convicted in Iowa in 2004 of sexual abuse for having sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old girl. The girl became pregnant but miscarried the child. Ocon-Marin’s legal status was revoked and he was deported to Mexico on Feb. 16, 2005.

The Buchanan County, Mo., Sheriff’s Department was provided with information that Ocon-Marin was illegally residing in St. Joseph. On Jan. 13, 2013, deputies arrested Ocon-Marin for failing to register as a sex offender. Ocon-Marin was convicted on Feb. 14, 2013, in Buchanan County Circuit Court. He was released on parole on June 7, 2013, and taken into federal custody.
