CITIZEN OF MEXICO SENTENCED TO 57 MONTHS IN
PRISON FOR ILLEGALLY REENTERING U.S. AFTER DEPORTATION
Deirdre M. Daly, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that LUCIANO FLORES JIMINEZ, 46, also known as Roberto Gonzalez-Gonzalez” and “Alberto Torres,” was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Alvin W. Thompson in Hartford to 57 months of imprisonment for illegally reentering the U.S. after he was deported.
According to court documents and statements made in court, JIMINEZ, a citizen of Mexico last residing in Bridgeport, has never held legal status in the U.S. In November 2009, JIMINEZ was deported to Mexico after he had sustained numerous convictions for larceny and other offenses in Connecticut, Georgia and Florida.
JIMINEZ illegally reentered the U.S. and was subsequently found and prosecuted under the alias of “Roberto Gonzalez-Gonzalez” in the Southern District of Texas for illegal reentry. After receiving a 90-day sentence, he was deported in July 2011.
JIMINEZ illegally reentered the U.S. in August 2011, was found, and deported a third time in November 2011.
JIMINEZ again illegally reentered the U.S. and, in June 2012, was arrested for a theft offense in Memphis, Tenn., under the alias of “Alberto Torres.” On December 5, 2012, he was arrested in Stamford on charges of criminal impersonation, forgery, larceny and interfering/resisting arrest.
JIMINEZ has been detained since his last arrest. On August 13, 2013, he pleaded guilty to one count of illegal reentry of a removed alien.
The investigation revealed that JIMINEZ used approximately 14 different aliases and five dates of birth in the U.S. since at least 1994.
This matter was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Enforcement and Removal Operations. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah R. Slater.
