Honduran Man Sentenced For Immigration Offense

United States Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that JOSE REYES-GABRIELES, age 33, 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 Lance M. Africk sentenced REYES-GABRIELES to 6 months of imprisonment, 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 December 7, 2017, REYES-GABRIELES was found in the United States after having been previously deported from the United States on April 17, 2008.

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