CHILD RAPE SUSPECT HELD ON HIGH BAIL
A former Revere resident deported to Guatemala was held on high bail at his arraignment Monday, a decade after he was indicted for sexually assaulting a child and two weeks after he re-entered the United States.
Rony Vasquez, 42, was arraigned in Suffolk Superior Court on four counts of rape of a child. At the request of Assistant District Attorney Maryrose Anthes of the DA’s Child Protection Unit, Clerk Magistrate Anne Kaczmarek imposed bail of $100,000 and ordered Vasquez to stay away and have no contact with the victim and her family, have no contact with children under age 16, surrender his passport, and be subject to GPS monitoring.
According to prosecutors, Revere Police on June 18, 2006, arrested Vasquez for alleged sexual contact with an 11-year-old girl. An investigation revealed that Vasquez had assaulted the child on prior occasions.
A Suffolk grand jury indicted Vasquez three months later. However, in October 2006, Vasquez was deported to Guatemala before he could appear for his Suffolk Superior Court arraignment. A warrant for his arrest has been in place since that time.
In the course of a fugitive investigation, US Marshals learned that Vasquez planned to travel from Guatemala to the United States on June 12 in order to visit a relative. When the plane he was traveling on landed in Houston, Marshals were onsite to take Vasquez into custody as a fugitive from justice.
Vasquez is represented by Patrick Millina. He returns to court Sept. 7.

Liam Stapleton, 38, of Revere was arraigned Monday in East Boston Municipal Court on charges of operating under the influence of liquor, negligent operation, and a marked lanes violation in connection with a crash at a worksite inside the Callahan Tunnel shortly after 2 a.m. Monday. The crash caused damage to equipment at the site but no injuries. Assistant District Attorney James Megee requested bail of $10,000 and orders that Stapleton remain alcohol-free subject to random testing and not operate a motor vehicle unless properly licensed. Judge John McDonald set bail in the amount of $500 and imposed the requested conditions of release. Stapleton was represented by Edward Harrington and returns to court Sept. 28.
DOROTHY, YOU’RE NOT IN QUINCY ANYMORE
One suspected drunk driver was astounded when police informed him on Sunday that he was not in Quincy, but rather Revere.
Around 2:15 a.m., a police detail working the Squire Lounge noticed a man pull into the Speedway gas station next door erratically and park far up on the curb. A quick examination of the car revealed that there were no tires on one side of the car, and the driver had been tooling around on the rims.
The driver tried to walk into the store, but fell down several times and appeared as if he had been falling all night based on the condition of his clothing. Officers noticed he had glassy eyes and smelled of alcohol.
They asked him how much he had to drink, and he replied, “I’m in Quincy.”
Officers informed him that he was in Revere, and he did not believe them.
“I’m in Quincy,” he repeated.
Officers asked him a few more questions and he couldn’t answer them. He was placed under arrest and police found a bottle of cucumber flavored Vodka in the car.
