Child sex suspect returns after decade in Hawaii

Deputies of the U.S. Marshal’s Service have escorted a Costa Rican accused of rape home from Hawaii. The man is Diego Mata Sánchez, 46. He was detained in Honolulu in December.

The Judicial Investigating Organization said the man has been a fugitive since 2001. The crime involves a 3 year old from 1999 to 2001.

U.S. officials were able to return Mata because he was living in Hawaii illegally and was deported. There was no extradition process.
