    Father of Rockville High School Rape Suspect Arrested by ICE

    UPDATE: Rape charges against Jose Montano and Henry Sanchez Milian were dropped, prosecutors said May 5, 2017.

    The father of one of the Rockville High School rape suspects was taken into custody after it was discovered he was in the United States illegally, according to a statement from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

    Adolfo Sanchez-Reyes, 43, from Guatemala, was arrested by ICE agents on Friday, March 24. He is being held at the Howard County Detention Center after a review of his immigration history revealed his illegal status.

    An ICE spokesman confirmed that Sanchez-Reyes is the father of Henry Sanchez-Millian, a Rockville High School student who was charged with first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree sexual offense in connection with an attack on a 14-year-old classmate.
