Luis Misael Madrid-romero Sentenced For Illegal Re-entry

LUIS MISAEL MADRID-ROMERO, age 42, a citizen of
Honduras, was sentenced today in federal court by U. S. District Judge Carl J. Barbier to forty-six
(46) months imprisonment, announced U. S. Attorney Dana Boente. In addition to the term of
imprisonment, Judge Barbier ordered that MADRID be placed on two (2) years of supervised
release following the term of imprisonment, during which time the defendant will be under federal
supervision and risks an additional term of imprisonment should he violate any terms of his
supervised release.

According to court documents, on November 15, 2012, MADRID, pled guilty to one count
of an indictment admitting he was an alien who was previously removed and was knowingly and
unlawfully found in the United States in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana without the Attorney General
or Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, having expressly consented to his reapplication
for admission into the United States. MADRID’s sentence was subject to an
enhancement based on a previous aggravated felony conviction.

The case was investigated by U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Enforcement
and Removal Operations (ICE). The case was prosecuted by Special Assistant United States
Attorney Robert Weir.
