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

BOSTON - Francisco Siri, 48, a Dominican national, was indicted today in federal court in Springfield on one count of unlawful reentry of a deported alien.


According to court documents, Siri was deported on Nov. 9, 1992, after being convicted in Essex County Superior Court of trafficking cocaine.  Law enforcement officers recently discovered Siri and determined him to be illegally present in the United States.


Siri 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 Michael Shea, Acting Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations in Boston, made the announcement today.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Todd E. Newhouse of Weinreb’s Springfield Branch Office is prosecuting the case.


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