Mexican National Indicted for Illegal Re-Entry

Acting U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans announced that JOSE MANUEL MAZON DE-DIOS (“MAZON”), age 32, of Mexico, was charged today in a one-count Indictment for illegal reentry of a removed alien in violation of Title 8, United States Code, Section 1326(a).

 

According to the indictment, MAZON reentered the United States after he was previously deported on April 5, 2013. If convicted, MAZON faces a maximum term of imprisonment of two years, a maximum fine of $250,000, a maximum term of supervised release of one year, and a mandatory $100 special assessment.

 

Acting U. S. Attorney Evans reiterated that an Indictment is merely a charge and that the guilt of the defendant must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

 

Acting U.S. Attorney Evans praised the work of the United States Department of Homeland Security in investigating this matter. Assistant U.S. Attorney Spiro G. Latsis is in charge of the prosecution.
