Mexican nationals arrested in Wilson County for multiple child sex crimes
Wilson County, Tenn.--Two Mexican nationals have been arrested in Wilson County on multiple child sex charges, the Wilson County Sheriff's Office reported on Tuesday.
Working with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and U.S. Marshal's Task Force, WCSO says 23-year-old Fernando Limon and his brother, 28-year-old Ramiro Limon are each facing four counts of rape of a child.
Investigators began working the case in 2015, leading to their indictment. The pair was arrested last Tuesday at an Antioch residence.
WCSO detective Walker Woods says the case involved children "considerably younger" than the 13-year-old age limit sentencing guidelines involving adults charged with sex crimes against children.
Sheriff Robert Bryan thanked the TBI and U.S. Marshal's Task Force for "apprehending these suspects on such heinous charges involving our children.”
Each is being held on $150,000 bond and face up to 25 years for each count of child rape. They also have a hold placed on them by federal immigration officials since they are not U.S. citizens.
