Citizen of Mexico Sentenced for Illegally Reentering the U.S.

John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that VICTOR MANUEL AGUILAR CAMACHO, 39, a citizen of Mexico, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Stefan R. Underhill in Bridgeport to approximately five months of imprisonment, time already served, for illegally reentering the United States after being deported.

According to court documents and statements made in court, in September 2013, the Willimantic Police Department arrested AGUILAR CAMACHO after a domestic violence incident.  The victim reported to police that AGUILAR CAMACHO, against whom the victim had obtained a protective order, had hid outside of her home, forced his way inside and assaulted her.

On March 11, 2014, AGUILAR CAMACHO pleaded guilty to violation of a protective order and strangulation in the second degree, and was sentenced to five years of incarceration, execution suspended, and three years of probation.  He was removed to Mexico in September 2014.

AGUILAR CAMACHO illegally reentered the U.S. and returned to Connecticut.  In September 2017, he was spotted outside the home of the victim.

AGUILAR CAMACHO has been detained in federal custody since October 5, 2017.  On November 20, he pleaded guilty to one count of reentry of a removed alien.

At the conclusion of today’s court proceeding, AGUILAR CAMACHO was taken into ICE custody and will be removed to Mexico.

This matter was investigated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Enforcement and Removal Operations.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Alina Reynolds.
