United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that Jesus Ochoa Aguirre, age 30, from Mexico, appeared before U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange on July 8, 2013, and pled guilty to the Indictment that charged him with Illegal Reentry after Deportation. 

The maximum penalty upon conviction is 2 years of imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, or both; 1 year of supervised release; an additional year of supervised release upon revocation; and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered. 

The charge stems from an incident on or about September 24, 2012, when Ochoa Aguirre, a/k/a Felipe Cabrera Aguirre, an alien, was found in the United States in the District of South Dakota, after having been previously deported from the United States on or about April 16, 2010.  Ochoa Aguirre did not obtain the consent of the Secretary of the United States Department of Homeland Security and the Attorney General of the United States to apply for admission into the United States.

The investigation was conducted by the Department of Homeland Security.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathryn N. Rich is prosecuting the case.          

Ochoa Aguirre was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending sentencing which has been set for August 28, 2013.
