A citizen and national of Peru who served prison time in Virginia for possessing child pornography was removed from the United States by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement.
Javier Ojeda-Leon, 27, of Ashburn, Va., was removed Thursday, Mar. 22, from Dulles International Airport.
Ojeda-Leon was convicted Aug. 12, 2011, in Loudon County, Va., on two counts of possession of child pornography and sentenced to five years in prison on each count. The court suspended all but six months on each sentence.
ICE encountered Ojeda-Leon on April 1, 2011, following his arrest for possession of child pornography. ICE ERO officers determined that he was removable following the completion of his criminal case and placed an ICE detainer on him.
Following the completion of his prison sentence at the Loudon County Jail, he was taken into ICE custody on Feb. 28 and ordered removed that same day.
Interpol issued a green notice Feb. 28, notifying law enforcement agencies throughout the world that Ojeda-Leon may be considered dangerous, liable to commit sexual offenses involving minors and liable to use pictures of minors for pornographic purposes for his own gain.
Ojeda-Leon had last entered the United States on Jan. 22, 2009, at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York as a B1/B2 visitor.
