Higdon, Jr., United States Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina, announces that a federal grand jury in Raleigh has returned indictments charging EDWIN MONROY-ABASOLO, age 30, of Mexico, JOSE QUISTIAN-LUPES, age 34, of Mexico, and OSCAR GEOVANI OLIVERA-HERNANDEZ, age 26, of Honduras with Illegal Reentry of a Deported Alien.

Additionally, the grand jury returned an indictment charging JOSE JUAN PEREZ-CAMPOZANO, age 47, of Mexico, with false attestation, fraud and misuse of visas, permits, and other documents, false representation of a social security number, and aggravated identity theft.

If convicted of illegal reentry of a deported alien, MONROY-ABASOLO, previously deported and found in Wake County, and QUISTIAN-LUPES, previously deported and found in Wake County, would face maximum penalties of two years’ imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, and a term of supervised release following any term of imprisonment.  

OLIVERA-HERNANDEZ, previously deported twice and found in Wake County, is alleged to have been previously removed subsequent to an aggravated felony conviction (3 counts of indecent liberties with a child).  Therefore, if convicted, he would face a maximum imprisonment term of 20 years, a $250,000 fine, and a term of supervised release following any term of imprisonment.

If convicted of false attestation, fraud and misuse of visas, permits, and other documents, false representation of a social security number, and aggravated identity theft, PEREZ-CAMPOZANO, found in Sampson County, would face maximum penalties of 27 years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, and a term of supervised release following any term of imprisonment.

The charges and allegations contained in the indictments are merely accusations.  The defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law. 

The cases are being investigated by ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations and Homeland Security Investigations.
