U.S. v. Rocha-Alvarado (9th Cir. - Dec. 12, 2016)

Doroteo Rocha-Alvarado molests a nine-year old girl, gets deported from the United States, and then is caught illegally reentering the country.  One might view such a person as a monster.

On the other hand, he's reentering the United States in order to buy medicine for his son's kidney transplant.  That's not especially monster-like.

People are complicated beings.
