Honduran Man Sentenced for Illegal Reentry

U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite announced that HECTOR ORLANDO RECATE-REYES, age 30, a citizen of Honduras, was sentenced today after previously pleading guilty to illegal reentry of a removed alien.

U.S. District Judge Ivan L.R. Lemelle sentenced RECATE-REYES to time served, to be followed by one year on supervised release.  RECATE-REYES will be surrendered to the custody of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for removal proceedings.

According to court records, RECATE-REYES reentered the United States after having been previously deported on August 8, 2012. 

U.S. Attorney Polite praised the work of the United States Department of Homeland Security in investigating this matter.  Assistant U S. Attorney Spiro G. Latsis is in charge of the prosecution.
