On May 7th 2018, Jessica Parks, A Preschool Teacher in Indianapolis, was walking to work when she became a victim of a hit and run. Juana Noemi Loa-Nunez, a woman who was in the U.S. illegally from Mexico, hit Jessica and tried to flee from the scene. According to reports, Police say several motorists chased Loa-Nunez’s car and boxed it in to prevent her from fleeing further.
Loa-Nunez was arrested on charges of leaving the scene of an accident causing serious bodily injury, and operating a vehicle having never received a license. But 3 days after her arrest, Loa-Nunez posted $250 cash bond to be released, despite ICE placing a detainer on her.
Loa-Nunez has since been detained by ICE and deported back to Mexico.
According to reports, ICE released the following statement regarding Loa-Nunez’s deportation:
On July 13, 2018, deportation officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) returned Juana Noemi Loa-Nunez, 36, to Mexico after an immigration judge ordered her voluntary departure on July 6.
According to reports, The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office stated:
In July, we were informed by ICE that the defendant was in ICE custody and had agreed to voluntary removal. We were further informed that she would be released from Federal custody within a couple weeks to be removed from the country. On July 9, our office filed a motion to revoke the defendant’s bond to prevent the defendant from being released from custody. The Court granted that motion and revoked the defendant’s bond on July 13. We subsequently learned that she was returned to Mexico on that day.
