As soon as his flight from Haiti landed in Miami, a 47-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of impregnating a 10-year-old.
Raymond Vincent was “expelled from Haiti” by the Haitian government, wrote Detective Tracy Figone, spokeswoman for the Fort Lauderdale Police Department, in an email. He was arrested Friday on a Fort Lauderdale arrest warrant. He was charged with sexual battery on a child under 12 and lewd lascivious conduct.
