Citizen Of Honduras Who Illegally Reentered U.S. After Deportation Is Sentenced


David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that RAMON MATAMORO-MEJIA, also known as Ramon Majano-Guzman, 34, a citizen of Honduras last residing in Norwalk, was sentenced today by Senior United States District Judge Warren W. Eginton in Bridgeport to 10 months of imprisonment for illegally reentering the United States after he was deported.

According to court documents and statements made in court, MATAMORO-MEJIA was deported from the U.S. to his native Honduras in February 2002 after he had served a prison sentence in California for attempted murder.  He returned to the U.S., was prosecuted in federal court for illegally reentering the U.S., and was deported to Honduras in June 2003.  MATAMORO-MEJIA again illegally reentered the U.S. and was deported a third time in July 2007.

MATAMORO-MEJIA again illegally reentered the U.S. in 2011 and, in October 2012, was arrested by the Norwalk Police Department and charged with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct, illegal use of a fake gun, threatening, interfering/resisting arrest, breach of peace and criminal trespass.

On February 7, 2013, MATAMORO-MEJIA pleaded guilty to one count of illegal reentry of a removed alien.

This matter was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Enforcement and Removal Operations.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Deborah R. Slater.
