U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement wants to deport a Mexican man for the fifth time after he pleaded guilty to indecent exposure.

Officers arrested Arturo Marcial-Alaniz, 30, of Mission on March 9 after an incident at the Dollar General on West Main Avenue in Alton, according to police department records.

A woman accused Alaniz of masturbating near the Dollar General, according to the criminal complaint against him. Questioned by the officer about what happened, Marcial said: “he had his penis out because he was urinating.”

Marcial pleaded guilty to indecent exposure, a Class B misdemeanor. County Court at Law Judge Sergio J. Valdez sentenced him to time served.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers picked up Marical at the Hidalgo County jail the next day.

“Record checks revealed the defendant was formally removed from the United States to Mexico for the fourth (4th) time on August 28, 2016 via the Hidalgo, Texas Port of Entry,” according to the federal criminal complaint against him.

Marcial apparently returned to the United States on Feb. 28 by crossing the Rio Grande near Laredo.

He’s now charged with illegal re-entry.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Dorina Ramos ordered Marcial held without bond.

Court records don’t list an attorney for Marcial, who remains in federal custody.
