Alien Indicted on Illegal Reentry Charge

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of North Carolina

RALEIGH – Robert J. Higdon, Jr., United States Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina, announces that a federal grand jury in Raleigh has returned an indictment charging OSCAR YOVANI SEVILLA SANTOS-CRUZ, age 42, of Honduras, with Illegal Reentry of a Deported Alien.


SANTOS-CRUZ, found in Wake County, is alleged to have been previously deported subsequent to a felony conviction (theft by shoplifting). Therefore, if convicted, he would face a maximum imprisonment term of 10 years, a $250,000 fine, and a term of supervised release following any term of imprisonment.


The charge and allegation contained in the indictment are merely accusations. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law. 


ICE’s Enforcement Removal Operations are investigating the case.
