Honduran Man Sentenced for Immigration Offense

United States Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that ALLAN ROSALES-BENITEZ, age 32, a native of Honduras, was sentenced today after previously pleading guilty to a one-count indictment for illegal reentry of a removed alien.

United States District Court Judge Lance M. Africk sentenced ROSALES to time served (8 months), followed by one year of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment fee. The defendant will be surrendered to the custody of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for removal proceedings.

According to court documents, on May 27, 2017, ROSALES was found in the United States after having been previously removed from the United States on July 11, 2012.

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.
