Carlos A. Alvarez Jr – Mayor’s son released

Home for the holidays: Carlos A. Alvarez Jr., whose father is Miami-Dade County’s former police director and current mayor.

Alvarez Jr., 32, has spent the past 13 ½ years in prison for sexual battery, kidnapping, false imprisonment, and lewd and lascivious assault on a child under 16.

He got out on Oct. 1, and lives in Ludlam Point, a rental complex near Ludlam and Bird roads.

He is registered as a sexual predator with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. ”Repeat sexual offenders, sexual offenders who use physical violence, and sexual offenders who prey on children are sexual predators who present an extreme threat to the public safety,” the Florida Sexual Predators Act says. A flier on the FDLE website, complete with color photo, lists his convictions, exact address, aliases and even tattoos, including ”Latin Bad Boy” and a head in a guillotine.

Miami-Dade cops arrested Alvarez Jr. in 1994 when he was 17. Dad was then assistant director of police. Alvarez Jr. sexually assaulted two girls, 14 and 16, and a 20-year-old woman. He also terrorized other girls, saying he had a gun. He faced life behind bars.

Alvarez Jr. made a deal and pleaded guilty. Sentence: 18 years, followed by 10 years of probation.

He did his time in seven facilities, including Union Correctional Institution in Raiford. Corrections officials say he received nearly a year of ”jail credit” for the time he spent in custody before his March ’95 plea. He also received another 1,328 days of ”gain time” — time off for good behavior. (He lost an additional 22 months’ gain time because of discipline issues, from ”spoken threats” and fighting to manufacture of drugs.)

Alvarez, 56, is divorced from Carlos Jr’s. mother. Father and son are in contact, says Alvarez’s spokeswoman Victoria Mallette. He declined to comment. ”The mayor’s private life has always been private, and he’d like to keep it that way,” Mallette says.

No word on what the junior Alvarez is doing these days. He could not be reached for comment.
