Mexican National Indicted for Illegally Reentering the United States

            BEAUMONT, Texas – A 34-year-old Mexican citizen has been indicted for immigration violations in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney Joseph D. Brown today.

Oscar Rendon-Gonzalez was named in an indictment returned by a federal grand jury on Apr. 3, 2019 charging him with unlawful reentry of a deported alien.   

According to documents filed in court, Rendon-Gonzalez was stopped for a traffic violation on IH-10 in Beaumont, Texas.  A records check revealed that Rendon-Gonzalez is alleged to have a criminal conviction for indecent liberty with a child out of North Carolina and had been deported to Mexico in 2009. 

If convicted, Rendon-Gonzalez faces up to 20 years in federal prison and deportation.

This case is being investigated by the Department of Homeland Security/Enforcement Removal Operations and the Beaumont Police Department and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Randall L. Fluke.

It is important to note that an indictment should not be considered as evidence of guilt and that all persons charged with a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
