A man from Brazil pleaded guilty to two counts of lewd and lascivious battery in the rape of a 15-year-old girl on the last day of cruise aboard Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas.

Luiz Scavone, 20, was sentenced by Broward County Judge Matthew Destry to one year in prison and was also declared a sex offender. In addition, following Scavone's jail sentence, Federal officials will arrange for the man to be deported back to Brazil.

Scavone and his 15-year-old brother were arrested back on January 3 for sexual assault of a teenage girl from Iowa that they lured to a private room from an onboard nightclub.

 If Scavone returns to the United States, he will be required to notify corrections officials and be supervised as a sex offender.
