(WSMV) A Middle Tennessee man could spend the rest of his life in prison after his second conviction for child rape in two years.

The Maury County District Attorney’s office said Juan Abrego-Chavez is an illegal alien. Before these convictions, he had no record.

Abrego-Chavez has been in the U.S. since 2002. According to documents obtained by News4, he was indicted in both cases. Up until 2016, no trouble with the law.

The DA believes he’s been flying under the radar for more than a decade.
