Attempt to 'elope' with girl brings prison sentence

A Salvadoran man was sentenced to five years, 10 months in federal prison for attempting to take his 15-year-old cousin to Canada over the Peace Bridge to “elope,” U. S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. announced Monday.

Enrique Rivas Perez, 28, an illegal immigrant, will be deported following the completion of his prison sentence. Rivas Perez was sentenced by U. S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara for trans-porting a minor across state lines for the purpose of engaging in illicit sexual conduct.
