Mexican National Guilty of Immigration Offense
United States Attorney Kenneth A. Polite announced that RIGO PACHECO-RODRIGUEZ, age 25, a Mexican citizen who was illegally in the United States, was sentenced yesterday after previously pleading guilty to a one-count indictment for illegal entry of a removed alien, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1326(a).
United States District Court Judge Jay C. Zainey sentenced PACHECO-RODRIGUEZ to time served, followed by 1 year of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment fee.
