Dominican National Sentenced for Illegal Reentry

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Massachusetts

BOSTON – A Dominican national was sentenced today in federal court in Boston for illegally reentering the United States after being deported.


Julio Ernesto Gomez, 46, a Dominican national residing in Boston, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge George A. O’Toole to eight months in prison, two years of supervised release, and will be subject to deportation. In August 2017, Gomez pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful reentry of a deported alien.


 Gomez was deported in 2004 after a federal trial in Boston in which the jury convicted him of making false statements in a passport application and using a fraudulent Social Security number. He later reentered the United States.


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 Christine Wichers of Weinreb’s Major Crimes Unit prosecuted the case.
