BOSTON - A Dominican national was charged today in federal court in Boston with a federal immigration crime.

Orlando Genao-Maldonado, 55, was charged with illegally reentering the United States after being deported.

According to the indictment, Genao-Maldonado was deported in March 2004. In May 2016, federal agents in Boston discovered Genao-Maldonado and found him to be illegally present in the United States.

Genao-Maldonado faces a sentence of no greater than 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release, a fine of $250,000 and 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 today. 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.
