JAMAICAN CITIZEN WHO ILLEGALLY REENTERED THE UNITED STATES IS SENTENCED
David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that MARVIN JERMAINE EARLE, 32, a citizen of Jamaica last residing in Bridgeport, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Christopher F. Droney in Hartford to approximately six months of imprisonment, time served, and three years of supervised release, for illegally reentering the U.S. after being deported.
According to court documents and statements made in court, EARLE entered the U.S. as a lawful permanent resident in 1982. On June 30, 1998, EARLE was convicted in Connecticut Superior Court in Bridgeport of carrying a dangerous weapon. On July 22, 2006, EARLE was deported to Jamaica.
On December 14, 2009, EARLE was apprehended in Bridgeport by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.
EARLE, who has admitted that he returned to the U.S. approximately one year after he was deported, did not obtain permission to reapply for reentry into the U.S., as is required by law.
On March 12, 2010, EARLE pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful presence in the United States.
EARLE will be deported to Jamaica.
This investigation was conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Detention and Removal Operation. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah R. Slater.
