Dominican National Charged with Illegal Reentry

BOSTON – Jonathan Julian Garcia, 38, a Dominican national residing in Roxbury, was charged yesterday in federal court in Boston with one count of illegal reentry of a deported alien.  

 

According to the indictment, Garcia was previously deported on Feb. 3, 2015. In October 2017, law enforcement encountered Garcia in Westwood and determined him to be illegally present in the United States.

 

Garcia faces a sentence of no greater than 20 in prison, three years of supervised release, a fine of $250,000, and will be subject to deportation upon completion of any sentence imposed. 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 Michael Shea, Acting Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations in Boston, made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorney David G. Tobin of Weinreb’s Major Crimes Unit is prosecuting the case.

 

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