Honduran National Sentenced for Illegal Reentry

U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite announced that DANIEL FIGUEROA-MUNGUIA, age 30, a citizen of Honduras, was sentenced today after previously pleading guilty to a one-count Bill of Information charging him with illegal reentry into the United States.

U.S. District Judge Nannette Jolivette Brown sentenced FIGUEROA-MUNGUIA to time served and a $100 special assessment.  FIGUEROA-MUNGUIA will be surrendered to the custody of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for removal proceedings.

According to the court documents, March 30, 2015, FIGUEROA-MUNGUIA was found in the United States after having been deported on April 29, 2011. 

U.S. Attorney Polite praised the work of the Department of Homeland Security in investigating this matter. Assistant United States Attorney Emily K. Greenfield was in charge of the prosecution.
