    Cuban criminal escapes from private prison
    facility

    HOUSTON (AP) - The search
    continued Monday for a Cuban national
    and convicted
    criminal who escaped from a north Houston detention

    center.

    Joaquin Aguila Echenique, 42,
    overpowered a guard and bolted out the
    front door of the
    Immigration and Naturalization Service Houston
    Processing
    Center on Saturday evening. The facility is run by
    Corrections
    Corporation of America.

    Echenique, a
    convicted rapist and burglar, had served his time in
    the
    Texas prison system and was awaiting deportation.
    However, he was
    being held indefinitely by INS because
    the United States cannot deport
    immigrants to
    Cuba, with which it has no diplomatic relations.


    Witnesses said Echenique jumped into a white van
    that appeared to be
    waiting for him. INS
    spokeswoman Luisa Aquino described him as being
    of medium
    height and build with a flower tattoo on his chest and
    a
    shield-and-ribbon tattoo on his right arm.


    Nashville-based CCA declined to comment on the
    escape .
