Mexican native charged with illegal reentry

March 11, 2014

Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, today announced an Indictment was filed against Alejandro Morillo-Bedolla, age 36, of Mexico.  

The indictment charges Morillo-Bedolla with unlawful reentry with an aggravated felony into the United States on March 29, 2010 and February 7, 2014.

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 Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Cleveland, Ohio.  The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Ava R. Dustin.

An indictment 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.
