I guess it's open season on 15-year-old girls.
A man accused of having sex with a 15-year-old girl, who lied to authorities and said she was raped by three men who kidnapped her in Encinitas, pleaded guilty Friday to a misdemeanor statutory rape charge.
Jose Adrian Cano, 20, of Vista was given credit for time served in county jail and placed on probation for three years. Vista Superior Court Judge Robert Kearney ordered Cano to stay away from the girl.
Deputy District Attorney Katherine Flaherty said in a telephone interview that Cano pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful sex with a minor more than three years younger than he.
Lauren Mack, a spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said Cano will now undergo immigration proceedings and a judge will determine whether he will be deported. Cano was deported this year after he was arrested on a minor drug offense, according to court records.
I guess it's cheaper to just deport him and hope he doesn't come back right away just like he did last time.
