Attorney for accused Rockville school rapist reveals why ICE let 18-year-old go; says girl planned sex

The attorney for the 18-year-old illegal immigrant accused of raping a 14-year-old girl explained why his client was still in the country.

Attorney Andrew Jezic said his client, Henry Sanchez-Milian, told reporters that ICE released his client because it doesn’t have the resources to deal with the the influx of illegals entering America.

“He was stopped at the border and detained by ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement]. He was detained for 12 days, but then ICE made the discretionary decision to simply let him go. They put him on a plane in Texas, and his father had to pay for the ticket. His father picked him up at BWI airport, and he’s been in this country with the full awareness of ICE,” he told WTTG.

“Immigration doesn’t have the resources to deal with everyone coming in, so they detain them, investigate them and find out if there is gang affiliation, any record in their home country or in the United States,” Jezic said.

He asserted that his client is guilty of any criminal wrongdoing because, he said, the sexual encounter was consensual and, according to Maryland law, for statutory rape charges the victim has to be exactly four years, or more, younger than the perpetrator. The girl, in this case, is 3 years and 8 months younger, according to WTTG.

“There is evidence that will come out later I believe that this was a planned encounter with this young lady and at least one of these gentlemen,” Jezic said, and added that he plans to find a way for his client to legally continue to stay in the United States.

“We are going to aggressively assert a claim of asylum for this young man because he was fleeing gang violence and gang threats in his hometown,” he said.
