BOSTON - A Dominican national was charged today in federal court in Boston with illegally reentering the United States after being deported.
Maximo Diaz-Tejada, 44, was indicted on one count of illegal reentry of a deported alien.
According to court documents, Diaz-Tejada was previously deported on Oct.1, 2013. Law enforcement officers discovered Diaz-Tejada on Dec. 14, 2017, and determined him to be illegally present in the United States.

Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling and Michael Shea, Acting Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations in Boston, made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorney Suzanne Sullivan Jacobus of Lelling’s Major Crimes Unit 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.
