GREENEVILLE, Tenn. – On Aug. 4, 2014, Jorge Gutierrez Ramirez, 39, a Mexican citizen, was sentenced to serve 70 months in federal prison by the Honorable J. Ronnie Greer, U.S. District Judge. Gutierrez pleaded guilty in May 2014, to a federal grand jury indictment charging him with illegal reentry into the United States after being deported.

Gutierrez was previously deported after a conviction for residential burglary in California. In September 2013, he was arrested by the Morristown Police Department and subsequently convicted of sexual battery in state court. In February 2014, he was released to federal custody to face an indictment for reentry after deportation returned by the federal grand jury. In May 2014, he pleaded guilty to the charge in U.S. District Court.

The indictment and subsequent conviction of Gutierrez was the result of an investigation conducted by Homeland Security Investigation and Morristown Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Reeves represented the United States.
