WASHINGTON - An Indian man was re-arrested in the US after he was released from prison following the completion of his 10-year sentence for posing a threat to public safety, authorities said. Jerald Peter Dsouza, 58, was arrested by the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) after he was released from a jail where he was lodged for using the Internet to induce a minor, believed to be a 13-year-old girl,
to engage in criminal sexual activity. He was convicted in March 2009, ICE said in a press release. "ICE places a high priority on identifying, arresting and removing foreign nationals with criminal records who pose a threat to public safety -- whether they're in the US legally or illegally," said William P. Joyce, Acting Field Office Director for Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in El Paso city. ICE said that as a result of his criminal conviction, Dsouza violated the terms of his legal status in the US.
