Javier Delores Gonzalez-diaz Sentenced in U.S. District Cour
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Great Falls, on February 1, 2010, before U.S. District Judge Sam E. Haddon, JAVIER DELORES GONZALEZ-DIAZ, a 35-year-old Mexican citizen, appeared for sentencing. GONZALEZ-DIAZ was sentenced to a term of:
- Prison: 114 months
- Special Assessment: $800
- Supervised Release: 3 years
GONZALEZ-DIAZ was sentenced after having been found guilty during a 2-day trial of illegal re-entry of a previously deported alien, identity theft, passport fraud, Social Security number misuse and aggravated identity theft. Assistant U.S. Attorney Bryan R. Whittaker prosecuted the case for the United States.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that GONZALEZ-DIAZ will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, GONZALEZ-DIAZ does have the opportunity to earn a sentence reduction for "good behavior." However, this reduction will not exceed 15% of the overall sentence.
The investigation was a cooperative effort between the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Social Security Administration - Office of Inspector General, the Diplomatic Security Service, the Canada Border Services Agency, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
