Citizen of Honduras Sentenced to Prison for Reentering U.S. after Being Deported

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Connecticut

John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that CARLOS ANARIBA, also known as Marvin Guillen, 27, a citizen of Honduras last residing in Stamford, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Alker Meyer in New Haven to six months of imprisonment for illegally reentering the U.S. after being deported.

According to court documents and statements made in court, in November 2008, ANARIBA, using the name Marvin Guillen, was charged in Connecticut Superior Court in Stamford with assault, weapons, breach of peace and forgery offenses.  After ANARIBA posted bond, he was released to the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and, in March 2009, was deported from the U.S. to Honduras.

ANARIBA subsequently returned to the U.S.

In October 2014, ANARIBA, using his true name, was arrested by Stamford Police for a burglary offense.  In February 2016, he was arrested by Stamford Police on larceny charges.

A biometric match connected the three criminal cases and confirmed that ANARIBA and Guillen are the same individual.  ANARIBA resolved all three cases and, in October 2016, was sentenced in state court to 25 months of incarceration, concurrently, on each count.

On November 17, 2017, ANARIBA pleaded guilty in federal court to one count of reentry of a removed alien.  He will deported to Honduras when he completes his prison term.

This investigation was conducted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Enforcement and Removal Operations.  The case was being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah R. Slater.
