For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Louisiana

Acting U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that DENIS A. MUNOZ-RODRIGUEZ, age 33, a native of Honduras, was sentenced today after previously pleading guilty to a one-count Indictment for illegal reentry of a removed alien.


U.S. District Court Judge Ivan L.R. Lemelle sentenced MUNOZ-RODRIGUEZ to time served, followed by one year of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment fee. The defendant will be surrendered to the custody of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for removal proceedings.


According to court documents, on November 3, 2016, MUNOZ-RODRIGUEZ was found in the United States after having been previously deported on January 16, 2003. He also had not received permission from the Attorney General of the United States nor the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security to reenter.


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