In a complaint filed today at U.S. District Court in Sacramento, the United States government is seeking to strip a man of his American citizenship claiming he falsified information during his naturalization process.

The defendant in the case, Christian Oribello Eguilos, 41, is currently serving a 40-year sentence after pleading nolo contendere to and was convicted of multiple counts of Forcible Lewd Act Upon a Child. Eguilos is an inmate at the Mule Creek State Prison in Ione, California. 

According to the complaint, Eguilos, a native of the Philippines, presented false information about his criminal background during the naturalization process. Eguilos allegedly did not reveal he had been arrested.

The complaint notes that between January 6, 2011, and December 16, 2014, Eguilos knowingly and forcibly sexually abused a child under the age of 14. On January 2, 2015, Eguilos was charged with 14 counts of criminal offenses including Forcible Lewd Act Upon a Child against Minor Victim 1, Lewd Act Upon a Child against Minor Victim 2, Oral Copulation or Sexual Penetration with Child 10 Years or Younger, and Possession of matter Depicting Minor Engaging in Sexual Conduct.

Eguilos was awarded his citizenship on November 6, 2013. During his interviews and application, Eguilos did not reveal he committed crimes for which he had not been arrested, which is a violation of the naturalization process.
