Dominican National Sentenced to 37 Months in Federal Prison
December 7, 2012

Boston - A citizen of the Dominican Republic was sentenced today in federal court for illegal reentry of a previously deported alien.

Amaury Alberto Olivo-Rodriguez, 37, residing in Boston, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge William G. Young to 37 months in prison. Following the completion of his sentence, he will be placed into removal proceedings and deported back to the Dominican Republic. Olivo-Rodriguez pleaded guilty in September.

In January, Olivo-Rodriguez encountered agents of the Department of Homeland Security’s Counter-Terrorism Response Unit at Logan Airport. When asked to produce identification, he presented a Puerto Rican driver’s license which appeared to be altered. Olivo-Rodriguez was detained for further questioning and admitted his true identity and citizenship. He also indicated that he had been deported in 2010 following the completion of a sentence for drug distribution.

United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz and Bruce M. Foucart, Special Agent in Charge of Immigration and Custom’s Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations in Boston, made the announcement today. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth G. Shine of Ortiz’s Major Crimes Unit.
