Dominican National Sentenced for Illegal Reentry

BOSTON – A Dominican national was sentenced yesterday in federal court in Boston for illegally reentering the United States after deportation.

Jonathan Julian Garcia, 38, a Dominican national residing in Roxbury, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Douglas P. Woodlock to one year in prison and three years of supervised release. Garcia will be subject to deportation upon completion of his sentence. In January 2018, Garcia pleaded guilty to one count of illegal reentry of a deported alien.  

Garcia was previously deported on Feb. 3, 2015. In October 2017, law enforcement encountered Garcia in Westwood and determined him to be illegally present in the United States.

United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling and Thomas P. Brophy, Acting Field Office Director, Boston, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations, made the announcement. Assistant U.S. Attorney David G. Tobin of Lelling’s Major Crimes Unit prosecuted the case.
