Mexican Man Sentenced for Immigration Offense

United States Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that JORGE GARCIA-HERNANDEZ, age 33, a native of Mexico, was sentenced today after pleading guilty to a one-count indictment for illegal reentry of a removed alien.

United States District Court Judge Mary Ann Vial Lemmon sentenced GARCIA to time served (10 months), 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 September 15, 2017, GARCIA was found in the United States after having been previously deported from the United States on April 21, 2012.

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