A Roman Catholic priest in West Chicago who was sentenced to prison for abusing a St. Charles boy has been released on parole.
However, 40-year-old Alejandro Flores is now in federal custody and is en route to a detention center, where his immigration status will be determined. Flores could be deported to his native Bolivia.

Flores pleaded guilty in 2010 to felony criminal sexual abuse. He served about 80 percent of his four-year prison sentence. Flores now must register as a sex offender.
Flores attempted suicide in January 2010 by leaping from the balcony of a Joliet church after his relationship with the then-13-year-old boy from St. Mary's Church in West Chicago came under investigation. The victim's mother contacted police after her live-in boyfriend caught Flores and the boy in a "suspicious position" at her home in St. Charles.
