Beltran has previously held a position as a Catholic priest.

Remarks: Beltran may have fled to southern Mexico.
Between 1989 and 1991, the FBI says that while working as a priest in Sacramento, California, Gerardo Beltran sexually abused two girls under the age of 14. In 1992, Beltran fled and an arrest warrant was issued. In 2007, a local Sacramento television station went to the small Mexican town of Iqualita where they located Beltran and found out he had been practicing mass there for years. In 2008, Beltran was finally arrested in Mexico City. Plenty of media reports covered his capture but five months after that, Mexican authorities released Beltran saying that the statute of limitations had expired on his case. This month, the FBI added his wanted poster to their featured fugitives website.
Thoughts? I understand Mexico is a nation with laws that are different compared to those in the United States, including statute of limitations for different crimes. However, if you are going to immigrate to the United States from your home nation of Mexico, then you should face the consequences from the nation you are charged with committing the offenses in, the same thing if you were born in the US but you went to Mexico to commit crimes. Sadly, who knows where Beltran is hiding out today, perhaps in another small Mexican village where children are at risk of being sexually abused by him.
