Honduran National Sentenced for Immigration Offense

U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite announced that ROGER AGUIRRE-SAGASTUME, age 29, a native of Honduras, was sentenced today after previously pleading guilty to a one-count Indictment for illegal entry of a removed alien.

U.S. District Judge Nannette Jolivette Brown sentenced AGUIRRE-SAGASTUME to six months imprisonment, one year of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment.  Following completion of his sentence, AGUIRRE-SAGASTUME will be surrendered to the custody of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for removal proceedings.

According to court documents, on March 17, 2016, AGUIRRE-SAGASTUME was found illegally present in the United States after having been officially deported and removed on August 4, 2009.  

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