This 40-year-old went to prison for sexually abusing a St. Charles boy. Now he might be sent back to his native Bolivia, according to media reports.

A West Chicago priest who was sent to prison for criminal sexual assault of a St. Charles teen could be headed back to his native country, according to media reports.

Alejandro Flores, 40, served about 80 percent of his four-year sentence and was released on parole June 6, according to Illinois Department of Corrections records. From there he went to a detention center while officials determine his immigration status, the Associated Press reports. If Flores can't stay in the U.S., he might be deported back to his native Bolivia.

Flores pled guilty in 2010 for sexually abusing a St. Charles boy from St. Mary's Church in West Chicago. The 13-year-old boy's mother contacted police after her boyfriend found the priest and the boy in a "suspicious position" at her home, the Associated Press story said.

Flores was required to register as a sexual predator in the Illinois Sex Offender Registry. His last known address was on the 1900 block of Beach Street in Broadview, according to his registry entry.
