MANHATTAN (CN) - Federal prosecutors say a man smuggled three undocumented aliens from Peru to Mahopac, N.Y., where he lived, and planned to have sex with one of them, who was 12 years old.
George Vieria, 38, is being held without bail after his Friday indictment on three counts of alien smuggling and one count of transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.
Prosecutors also charged Vieria with one count of copyright infringement, claiming that he reproduced and distributed a DVD box set.
Vieria faces a life sentence if convicted of all charges.
