Honduran National Sentenced for Illegal Reentry

U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite announced that EDUARD TERCERO-LAGOS, age 25, a citizen of Honduras, was sentenced today after previously pleading guilty to a one-count Bill of Information for illegal reentry of a removed alien.

U.S. District Judge Sarah S. Vance sentenced TERCERO-LAGOS to time served and a $100 special assessment.   TERCERO-LAGOS will be surrendered to the custody of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for removal proceedings.

According to court documents, TERCERO-LAGOS was found in the United States on December 8, 2014 after having been officially deported and removed on or about June 24, 2013.

U.S. Attorney Polite praised the work of the United States Department of Homeland Security in investigating this matter.  Assistant United States Attorney Spiro G. Latsis was in charge of the prosecution.
