An undocumented immigrant living in Mississippi has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for raping a 12-year-old girl after taking her to a restaurant bathroom and convincing her to give her her phone number.
Valentin Ariosto Alfonso-Arguello, 38, was arrested last September on charges of sexual battery in Ridgeland.
The Sheriff & # 39; s Office in Madison County said that on August 25, Alfonso-Arguello was working in a restaurant in the city when he saw a 12-year-old girl enter the toilet.
The man followed the girl inside and forced the child to give him her telephone number and address.

Around 3 o'clock the next morning, the girl's mother woke up at the family's house to find her daughter's bedroom empty. Then she saw her child walk through the front door and a pick-up truck that drove away with one of its doors open.
The 12-year-old girl later revealed to her father that Alfronso-Arguello started texting her and when his service was over and said he wanted to see her. By that time he was already on his way to the girl's house.
The victim left her house and got into the truck with Alfronso-Arguello, where he forced himself after she had repeatedly told him and tried to get out of the vehicle, according to a press release from Rankin County District Attorney John Bramlett Jr.

The 5-meter high, 135-pound Alfonso-Arguello held the girl and raped her.
The victim was interviewed by the Children & # 39; s Advocacy Center and her story was supposed to be consistent with what she had told her father and the hospital nurses where she had been examined.
On September 11, the Sheriff & # 39; s Office of Madison County arrested Alfronso-Arguello, who made a statement admitting to having sex with the victim.
Investigators were also able to find his cell phone, where they found text messages to and from the victim that supported her timeline and allegations.
The public prosecutor announced Tuesday the decision of Alfonso-Arguello, which states that eight of the twenty years are suspended.
Upon release from prison, Alfonso-Arguello must register as an offended sex and serve five years of probation, unless he is deported by the US Immigration and Customs Administration
& # 39; Every day, young girls in America are forced to meet men who have a bad intention toward them. Unfortunately, this is one of those cases where a much older man talked to a young girl to meet him and forced her to have sex, & Bramlett said. & # 39; We have zero tolerance for people like Alfronso-Arguello and we will continue to work on getting rid of our streets from criminals like him. & # 39;
