Mexican National Sentenced for Illegal Reentry

U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite announced that NAVOR SOLIS-GARCIA, a citizen of Mexico, was sentenced today after previously pleading guilty to a one-count indictment that charged him with illegal reentry of a removed alien, in violation of Title 8 U.S.C. Section 1326(a).

U.S. District Judge Carl J. Barbier sentenced SOLIS-GARCIA to time served and ordered him to pay a special assessment of $100.  SOLIS-GARCIA will be surrendered to the custody of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for removal proceedings.

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