Honduran Man Sentenced for Immigration Offense

U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite announced that KEVIN CALIX-TORRES, age 26, a native of Honduras, was sentenced today after previously pleading guilty to a one-count Indictment for illegal reentry of a removed alien.

U.S. District Court Judge Jay C. Zainey sentenced CALIX to time served, followed by one year of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment fee.  CALIX will be surrendered to the custody of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for removal proceedings.

According to court documents, on July 7, 2016, CALIX was found in the United States after having been previously deported from the United States on June 2, 2008.

U.S. Attorney Polite 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.
