Honduran Man Sentenced for Immigration Offense

United States Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that ROBERTO UMANA-ROSA, age 46, 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 Nannette Jolivette Brown sentenced UMANA-ROSA to time served (11 months) and ordered him to pay a $100 special assessment fee. The defendant will be surrendered to the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for removal proceedings.

According to court documents, on June 13, 2017, UMANA-ROSA was found in the United States after having been previously removed from the United States on October 15, 1998.

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.
