Mexican Man charged with illegal reentry
Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, today announced an information was filed against David Gerardo-Duran, age 33, of Mexico.
The information charges Gerardo-Perez with unlawful reentry into the United States on June 16, 2012.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.
The investigating agency in this case is the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Cleveland, Ohio. The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Thomas O. Secor.
An information is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
