Unreal! The attorney for the defense, mind you, ask for the judge to take into consideration that he was drunk he attack the 13 year old girl. W T F is that suppose to be an excuse?!!!

Then this pedophiles' attorney threw in the cost of incarcerating Illegal aliens and what an "undue burden" it is on the state to pay for it.

What did they want? Did they think he should be sent back to MEXICO, to avoid us paying for his jail time? Heck he only has to serve half the sentence to be considered for parole.

The attorney was looking for future repeat business. I have no clue how criminal defense attorneys sleep at night.

A district judge on Friday sentenced a Mexican national who entered the country illegally to 15 years in prison for forcing his way into an apartment and assaulting a 13-year-old girl.
----------
He should have got life in my opinion..
----------
An Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent on Friday testified Vasquez was an illegal immigrant and would be deported when released from prison.
----------
Yep and hopefully never return..
----------
In closing remarks, prosecutor Jennifer Bassett urged Judge Cecil Puryear to consider the forceful and physical nature of the assault and the lasting effect it will have on the girl, as well as the fact that if he is released early from prison, there is nothing to stop him from re-entering the country without registering as a sex offender and offending again.
----------
Thats the main reason the border and ports need secured.. We don't need any of these people in this country..
----------
Jesse Mendez, Vasquez's attorney, said Vasquez was drunk when he committed the assault and asked the judge to take that into consideration.
----------
Tell that to the victims of the crimes they commit.. So that makes it allright?? What a moron..
----------
He also said the cost of incarcerating illegal immigrants who commit crimes is an undue burden on the state.
----------
The State has a duty to its citizens to protect them from crime.. Not allow it dumbazz..
----------
As a result of a 2007 law, Vasquez must serve at least half his sentence before he is eligible for parole.
----------
No parole.. Day for day period..
----------
"This is an appropriate sentence for a stranger who broke into a house to molest a child," Bassett said. "And this is a case where the effects on this child will not be forgotten by her, and this is a serious crime in Lubbock County."
----------
It is a serious crime and I am sure she will never forget it..
