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

BOSTON - A Brazilian national charged with an immigration crime pleaded guilty and was sentenced today in federal court in Boston.

Daybson Pereira, 34, a Brazilian national residing in Boston, pleaded guilty to one count of illegal reentry of a deported alien. Upon acceptance of his plea, U.S. Senior District Court Judge Rya Zobel sentenced Pereira to time served and one year of supervised release. Pereira will be placed into removal proceedings and deported to Brazil.

Pereira was previously deported in March 2009 after being found unlawfully present in the United States. In May 2017, federal agents determined Pereira to be again in the country illegally while he was awaiting trial at Essex County House of Corrections on multiple counts of witness intimidation and restraining order violations.

Acting United States Attorney William D. Weinreb and Matthew J. Etre, Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations in Boston, made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth G. Shine of Weinreb’s Major Crimes Unit prosecuted the case.
