Guatemalan National Sentenced for Illegal Reentry

U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite announced that ALVARO D. CAMPOS, age 39, a citizen of Guatemala, was sentenced today after having previously pled guilty to a one-count Indictment for illegal reentry of a removed alien.

U.S. District Judge Sarah S. Vance sentenced CAMPOS to 7 months incarceration, followed by one year of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment.  Following incarceration, CAMPOS will be surrendered to the custody of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for removal proceedings.

According to court records, on or about October 1, 2014, CAMPOS was found in the United States after having been officially deported and removed on three prior occasions, most recently on or about November 14, 2013.

U.S. Attorney Polite praised the work of the United States Border Patrol in investigating this matter.  Assistant United States Attorney Rick Veters is in charge of the prosecution.
