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

BOSTON - A Guatemalan national was charged yesterday in federal court in Boston with a federal immigration crime.

Selvin Jarquin-Felipe, 31, was charged with illegally reentering the United States after being deported.

According to the indictment, Jarquin-Felipe was previously deported in September 2014 after unlawfully entering the United States. In May 2017, federal agents in Framingham discovered Jarquin-Felipe and determined him to be in the United States illegally.

The charge of illegal reentry after deportation provides for a sentence of no greater than two years in prison, one year of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. Jarquin-Felipe will 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.

The details contained in the indictment are allegations. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
