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

BOSTON - A Dominican national pleaded guilty today in federal court in Boston to illegal reentry after deportation.

Jimmy Jonathan Sanchez-Moreta, 40, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Court Judge Denise J. Casper, who scheduled sentencing for Sept. 12, 2017.   In April 2013, Sanchez-Moreta was deported from the United States.  Federal authorities encountered Sanchez-Moreta in January 2015 and determined him to be unlawfully present in the U.S.

Sanchez-Moreta faces a sentence of no greater than 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. He is 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.
