A 34-year-old Haitian, convicted of a sex offense against a minor, has been arrested at the West Palm Beach law firm where he worked
The arrest was made following a joint investigation with the Port St. Lucie Sheriff's Office, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said. Vladymir Pierre-Louis is being held at the Krome detention center in west Miami-Dade County.
Pierre-Louis was convicted in Palm Beach County on Sept. 30, 1994, for lewd assault on a minor. Pierre-Louis had eluded law enforcement officers since his appeal against deportation was dismissed and his order of removal became final.
Pierre-Louis was ordered deported by an immigration judge on March 28. His appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals was dismissed on July 26. Pierre-Louis is currently in the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Pierre-Louis' removal from the country was "imminent," the agency said in a statement.
