Honduran National Pleads Guilty to Illegal Reentry

Acting U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that MARLIN CACERES-GUERRERO, age 26, a native of Honduras, pled guilty today to a one-count Indictment charging him with illegal entry of a removed alien.

 

According to the court documents, CACERES-GUERRERO was previously removed from the United States on May 3, 2013. He was later found in the Eastern District of Louisiana on February 21, 2017, and had not received permission from the Attorney General of the United States or the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security to reenter.

 

CACERES-GUERRERO faces a maximum term of imprisonment of two years, a fine of $250,000, one year of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment fee. U.S. District Judge Ivan L.R. Lemelle set sentencing for June 21, 2017.

 

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