Luis Remache, 40, an illegal alien from Ecuador, was charged yesterday night with aggravated sexual assault for molesting and raping a 10-year old girl over a two year period. Bergen County authorities say that the Hackensack truck mechanic is scheduled to appear in court today. Jail records show that Remache is being held without bail and is facing three counts.
Remache was previously arrested in 2010 with illegally possessing an “automatic” handgun. He was also jailed in 2006 for failing to pay fines.
The Bergen County Prosecutor’s press release states:
On Wednesday, April 5, 2017, the Hackensack Police Department and Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office conducted interviews based on allegations from a 10-year-old female that Luis REMACHE had engaged in sexual conduct with the victim for the past two years in Hackensack, New Jersey.
NJ.com reported in 2014 that Remache’s son, Luis Remache Jr., 25, also an illegal alien from Ecuador, has been awaiting trial in Bergen County, New Jersey since 2014 on charges that he violently raped a 13 year old girl since she was 11 years old.
It is unknown whether Remache has been offered a plea as the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office has a reputation for being weak on sexual predators and rapists. Child rapists are routinely offered pleas of 1 to 5 years in prison by Bergen County prosecutors and probation.
