Yet another fine upstanding person..

Doing the jobs Americans won't do.

Hugo Alva, 32, of Cold Spring is accused of two counts of soliciting a minor to engage in sexual contact.

The charges are felonies.

Alva has been a minister at El Pan de Vida Church, and at least two teenage girls who attended the church accused him of phone harassment this summer. Police have said the calls were sexual in nature. Jurors must find that Alva intended to commit sexual acts with the girls in order to convict him of the charges.

There are no allegations that Alva had any sexual contact with the girls.

If convicted of the charges, Alva could face deportation; he is suspected of being an illegal immigrant.

How about deportation anyway, given that he's here illegally.
