BOSTON - A Dominican national was charged yesterday in U.S. District Court in Boston with a federal immigration crime.

Manuel Bienvenido Pimentel-Pimentel, 54, was charged with illegally reentering the United States after being deported.  Pimentel-Pimentel was deported in August 2010, and in May 2017, federal agents discovered Pimentel-Pimentel and found him to be illegally present in the United States.

Pimentel-Pimentel faces a sentence of no greater than two years in prison, one year of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. He will also 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 today. Assistant U.S. Attorney David G. Tobin 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.
