A Guatemalan man who was deported twice is awaiting trial on rape and child sex-abuse charges in Frederick, Md.

Fernando Lopez-Ramirez, 29, is being held without bail following his arrest in Frederick last month.

The county sheriff’s office said Lopez-Ramirez was deported in November 2008 after he was caught driving without a license in Frederick. Three months later, he was apprehended by U.S. Border Patrol agents in Arizona and deported again in February 2009.

Capt. Tim Clarke said Lopez-Ramirez is among about 650 people detained by the Frederick County sheriff’s office under an immigration enforcement program it joined in 2008.
