Rodriguez-Bruno, who is also being held on an Immigration and Custom Enforcement hold, received an 18-year sentence with two years suspended for the crime.
According to Arkansas Court connect the rape occurred on July 14th of 2014. His records show he was given bond sometime in 2015 and it appears he had no further contact with law enforcement.
His booking information indicates he was living in Austin, Texas for at least part of the time he was on the lam, and he also shows an address in the 1900 block of North 13th Street in court records until his arrest last year.
