WEST CHICAGO – A West Chicago priest released on parole in early June after serving most of a prison sentence for felony criminal sexual abuse now faces deportation to his native country of Bolivia.

Alejandro Flores, 40, pleaded guilty in 2010 to charges that he abused a St. Charles boy after his relationship with the 13-year-old from St. Mary's Catholic Parish in West Chicago was investigated. He was released on parole after serving about 80 percent of a four-year prison sentence.

Although Flores was released on parole, he now is being held at the McHenry County Adult Correctional Facility in Woodstock, pending his removal to Bolivia, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.
