Gretna Man Sentenced for Illegal use of A Social Security Number

ANDRES VILLALVA-GUADARRAMA, age 53, a Mexican citizen living in Gretna, was sentenced after previously pleading guilty to a one-count Bill of Information for illegal use of a Social Security Number.

U.S. District Judge Eldon E. Fallon sentenced VILLALVA-GUADARRAMA to time served and a $100 special assessment.

According to court documents, VILLALVA-GUADARRAMA, for the purpose of obtaining employment and for other purposes, knowingly and with intent to deceive, did falsely represent on an U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Employment Eligibility Verification Form that a Social Security Number not issued to him, was assigned to him.

U.S. Attorney Polite praised the work of the Department of Homeland Security/ICE in investigating this matter.  Assistant United States Attorney Irene González was in charge of the prosecution.
