Man Sentenced for Sex Offenses Against Native Americans

Honduran Man Sentenced to 27 Years in Prison for Sex Offenses Against Two Native American Females

Tucson, Arizona - Friday, Hernan Ramirez-Ortega, 39, of Honduras, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Cindy K. Jorgensonto 27 years in prison as the result of his guilty pleas to one count each of aggravated sexual abuse and abusive sexual contact. Ramirez-Ortega admitted sexually assaulting an 11-year-old Tohono O'odham girl in March 2010 while he was living on the Tohono O'odham Nation and sexually abusing another adult female who is a member of and was living on the Gila River Indian Reservation in August 2010.

"The United States takes very seriously the victimization of Native American women. The nearly three-year effort to bring Mr. Ramirez-Ortega to justice is a reflection of that resolute commitment," said U.S. Attorney John S. Leonardo.

After Ramirez-Ortega completes his 27-year prison sentence, he will be immediately deported to Honduras. He will also be placed on 20 years of federal supervision, which includes a prohibition against his return to the United States.

The investigation in this case was conducted by the Tohono O'Odham Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The prosecution was handled by Micah Schmit, Assistant U.S. Attorney, District of Arizona, Tucson.
