Acting U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that SALVADOR TENOCO-RODRIGUEZ, age 40, a citizen of Mexico, was charged yesterday in a one-count Bill of Information with illegal reentry of a removed alien after deportation, in violation of  Title 8 U.S.C. Section 1326(a) and (b)(2).


According to the Bill of Information, TENOCO-RODRIGUEZ reentered the United States on or about August 29, 2017, after having been previously removed therefrom on or about October 27, 2006.  


If convicted, TENOCO-RODRIGUEZ faces a maximum term of imprisonment of twenty years, a fine of up to $250,000, three years supervised release after imprisonment, and a $100 special assessment.
