Honduran Man Sentenced to 2 Years for Immigration Offense

United States Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that YONI LAGOS, age 25, a native of Honduras, was sentenced today after pleading guilty to a one-count indictment for illegal reentry of a removed alien.

United States District Court Judge Kurt D. Engelhardt sentenced LAGOS to the maximum sentence, 2 years, followed by one year of supervised release, a $100 special assessment fee, and a $5,000 fine. The defendant will be surrendered to the custody of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for removal proceedings after he completes his sentence.  

According to court documents, on March 21, 2017, LAGOS was found in the United States after having been previously deported from the United States on January 13, 2016.

U.S. Attorney Evans praised the work of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in investigating this matter. Assistant United States Attorney Jon Maestri was in charge of the prosecution.
