David Gonzalez Sentenced For Illegal Reentry

DAVID GONZALEZ (a/k/a Othoniel David Reconco), age 24, a citizen of Honduras, was sentenced today in federal court by U. S. District Judge Ivan L.R. Lemelle, announced U.S. Attorney Dana Boente.  GONZALEZ was sentenced to 20 months imprisonment.  In addition to the term of imprisonment, Judge Lemelle ordered that GONZALEZ be placed on three years of supervised release following the term of imprisonment, during which time the defendant will be under federal supervision and risks an additional term of imprisonment should he violate any terms of supervised release.

According to court documents, on April 17, 2013, GONZALEZ pled guilty to a one-count indictment admitting he was an alien who was previously removed and was knowingly and unlawfully found in the United States, in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana on January 24, 2013, without the Attorney General or Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, having expressly consented to his re-application for admission into the United States.  GONZALEZ’s sentence was subject to enhancement based on a previous aggravated felony conviction.        

This case was investigated by United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office.  The case was prosecuted by Special Assistant United States Attorney Robert Weir.
