CITIZEN OF EL SALVADOR CHARGED
WITH ILLEGALLY REENTERING U.S.
David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that a federal grand jury sitting in New Haven returned an indictment today charging DANILO ALVARADO-CARBAJAR, 28, a citizen of El Salvador, with one count of reentry of a removed alien.
The indictment alleges that ALVARADO-CARBAJAR, who had previously been deported to El Salvador following a conviction for the commission of an aggravated felony, illegally reentered the United States. ALVARADO-CARBAJAR did not obtain the consent of the U.S. Attorney General or his successor, the Secretary for the Department of Homeland Security, to reapply for admission into the U.S.
If convicted, ALVARADO-CARBAJAR faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years.
ALVARADO-CARBAJAR is currently incarcerated in state custody.
U.S. Attorney Fein stressed that an indictment is not evidence of guilt. Charges are only allegations, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
This case is being investigated by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Criminal Alien Program. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Neeraj N. Patel.
