CITIZEN OF GUATEMALA SENTENCED TO 21 MONTHS IN
PRISON FOR ILLEGALLY REENTERING U.S. AFTER DEPORTATION
Deirdre M. Daly, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, today announced that LUSVIN LEONEL OLIVA-AQUINO, 27, a citizen of Guatemala last residing in Stamford, was sentenced yesterday by United States District Judge Robert N. Chatigny in Hartford to 21 months of imprisonment for illegally reentering the United States after he was deported.
According to court documents and statements made in court, OLIVA-AQUINO illegally entered the U.S. sometime prior to April 24, 2008, when he was arrested by the Stamford Police Department on charges of second degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor. The charges stemmed from OLIVA-AQUINO’s illegal sexual contact with a 13-year-old girl. He was convicted of both offenses and sentenced to eight years of incarceration, execution suspended, with one year to serve, and a total of 10 years of probation. OLIVA-AQUINO was deported to his native Guatemala in October 2009.
On October 3, 2012, OLIVA-AQUINO was arrested by Stamford Police for motor vehicle offenses.
OLIVA-AQUINO has been detained since his arrest. On February 7, 2013, he pleaded guilty to one count of illegal reentry of a removed alien.
This matter was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Enforcement and Removal Operations, with the assistance of the Stamford Police Department. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Deborah R. Slater.
