Henriquez-Martinez was held in lieu of $150,000 bail.
Federal immigration authorities also asked that Wake County officials hold him for 48 hours after the indecent liberties charges are finished. They said in a form used to request detention that Henriquez-Martinez, an Elsalvador native, already is the subject of a final deportation order.
