BOSTON - A Dominican national pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court in Boston to a federal immigration crime.

Manuel Bienvenido Pimentel-Pimentel, 54, pleaded guilty today to illegal reentry of a deported alien before U.S. District Court Judge George A. O’Toole Jr., who scheduled sentencing for July 26, 2017.

On June 1, 2017, Pimentel-Pimentel was charged with illegally reentering the United States after being deported. In May 2017, federal agents discovered Pimentel-Pimentel in Billerica and found him to be illegally present in the United States. He had been previously deported in August 2010.

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.
