After Four Deportations, Mexican Citizen Sentenced

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Kansas

KANSAS CITY, KAN. – A Mexican citizen who has been deported four times, Jorge Carrillo-Hernandez, 36, was sentenced today to 57 months in federal prison for unlawfully returning to the United States, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said. He was also sentenced to an additional term of 24 months in prison, to be served consecutively, because he was still on supervised release in another case when he unlawfully returned.

Records filed in court prior to his sentencing showed that between 2003 and 2013, he was convicted of aggravated assault, aggravated battery, domestic battery, three times for driving under the influence, and twice in federal court for unlawful re-entry following deportation subsequent to convictions for aggravated felonies.

In the present case, he came to the attention of Immigration and Customs Enforcement after his fourth arrest for DUI in April 2017.

McAllister commended Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Assistant U.S. Attorney Leon Patton for their work on the case.
