Authorities bring in Spanish interpreter to help catch rapist

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Jones County authorities are making a plea to the Hispanic community for information that could lead to the capture of a serial rapist.

Authorities have brought in a Vikki Cintra, a Spanish interpreter with the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance.

Cintra said many Hispanics are afraid to have any contact with police because they fear deportation, but authorities said they have no interest in the immigration status of any Hispanic residents; they just need information that will help them catch the rapist.
