U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Massachusetts

BOSTON - A Brazilian national was charged yesterday in federal court in Boston with illegally reentering the United States after being deported. 

Henrique Ortmayer, 23, a Brazilian national residing in Boston, was encountered by police in April 2017 and arrested on open state warrants.  Ortmayer’s fingerprints revealed he was in the United States illegally and had been previously deported in November 2015.  

The charge of illegal reentry after deportation provides for a sentence of no greater than 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. Ortmayer will be subject to deportation upon completion of his sentence. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

Acting United States Attorney William D. Weinreb and Matthew J. Etre, Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations in Boston, made the announcement. The Danvers Police Department assisted with the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth G. Shine of Weinreb’s Major Crimes Unit is prosecuting the case.

The details contained in the indictment are allegations. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
