Lopez-Hernandez, who will have to register as a sex offender, received the same sentence of a prison term not to exceed 10 years followed by supervised release for the rest of his life after an investigation revealed that the defendant had performed a sex act with a fifteen-year-old child.

According to the Muscatine County Attorney’s office, both Guerrero and Lopez-Hernandez are subject to a detainer from the U.S. Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and will likely be removed from the United States upon completion of their prison sentences.
