Two Indictments Returned by Federal Grand Jury

CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA - Two individuals were named in Indictments returned by a federal grand jury sitting in Clarksburg, West Virginia, on September 5, 2012.

United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced that:

KEITH A. VALENTINE, age 33, of Westover, West Virginia, was named in a one-count Indictment charging him with Failure to Register and Update Registration as a Sex Offender from April of 2011 to June 27, 2012. If convicted, VALENTINE faces up to 10 years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine.

The case will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney David J. Perri and was investigated by the United States Marshals Service.

JUVENTINO PECERO-REBULLOSA, age 35, was named in a one-count Indictment charging him with Unlawful Reentry After Deportation. The Indictment alleges that between 2007 and June 11, 2012, in Lost Creek, West Virginia, PECERO-REBULLOSA unlawfully reentered the United States after having been deported and removed on May 18, 2005. If convicted, PECERO-REBULLOSA faces up to 2 years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine and deportation.

The case will be prosecuted by Criminal Chief Shawn A. Morgan and was investigated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
