Mexican Citizen Charged With Unlawfully ReĀ­Entering United States

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 25, 2010

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Acting United States Attorney Robert S. Cessar announced today, May 25, 2010, that a citizen of Mexico has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on a charge of re‑entry of a removed alien.

The one‑count indictment named Olga Juarez‑Luna, age 44 of Mexico, as the sole defendant.

According to the indictment, on May 5, 2010, Olga Juarez-Luna was found in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, after having unlawfully re‑entered the United States following removal on or about August 5, 1997.

Assistant United States Attorney Constance M. Bowden, who presented the case to the grand jury, indicated that the law provides for a maximum total sentence of two (2) years in prison, a fine of $250,000.00, or both.  Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
