IN FEDERAL PRISON FOR ILLEGALLY REENTERING THE U.S.
David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, today announced that DANILO ALVARADO-CARBAJAR, 29, a citizen of El Salvador, was sentenced today by Senior United States District Judge Alfred V. Covello in Hartford to 37 months of imprisonment for illegally reentering the United States following his deportation.
According to court documents and statements made in court, ALVARADO-CARBAJAR was deported from the United States to his native El Salvador in May 2007 following a state conviction for sexual assault in the second degree. In approximately May 2012, ALVARADO-CARBAJAR illegally reentered the U.S. without first obtaining the consent of the Attorney General of the United States or his successor, the Secretary for the Department of Homeland Security, to reapply for admission into the U.S.
On June 22, 2012, ALVARADO-CARBAJAR was arrested by the Norwalk Police Department on a state probation violation. Subsequent investigation revealed that ALVARADO-CARBAJAR was in the country illegally. He has been detained since his arrest.
On December 13, 2012, ALVARADO-CARBAJAR pleaded guilty to one count of illegal reentry of a removed alien.
This matter was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Criminal Alien Program. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Neeraj N. Patel.
