Man charged with raping students in Samoa found in Seattle

SEATTLE -- A 37-year-old man charged with raping four disabled students at a school in Samoa was found in the Seattle area and deported Tuesday, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

According to ICE, Vaiaoga Leatuvao came to the United States on a six-month visitor's visa in September 2012.

In July 2013, the Samoan government charged Leatuvao with raping four female students at a Samoan school for disabled children where he was working as a teacher.

Leatuvao, who was still in Seattle on the now-expired visa, was arrested last August for immigration violations, according to ICE. He was finally deported Tuesday from Sea-Tac Airport, arriving in Samoa on Thursday.
