WILSON COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — Two brothers have been arrested and indicted on multiple child sex abuse charges following an investigation by the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the United States Marshal’s Task Force.
Fernando Limon, 23, and Ramiro Limon, 28, each face four counts of rape of a child.
Both were arrested in Antioch, Tennessee on September 20.
Detectives said the case was especially egregious because it involved children “considerably younger” than the 13-year-old age limit sentencing guidelines involving adults charged with sex crimes involving children.
Both men are being held at the Wilson County jail under $150,000 bond. They also have a hold placed against them by federal immigration officials because they are Mexican nationals and not citizens of the United States.
If convicted, the suspects face up to 25 years in prison on each count of child rape involving a child less than 13 years of age. They could also be deported without the ability to re-enter the United States without Federal prosecution.
