Guatemalan National Charged with Illegal Reentry After Deportation

BOSTON - A Guatemalan national was charged today in federal court in Boston with illegally reentering the United States after being deported.  

Antonio Solis, 34, was indicted on one count of illegal reentry of a deported alien.

According to court documents, law enforcement officers in Saugus encountered Solis on March 24, 2018, and determined him to be illegally present in the United States. Solis was previously deported on July 3, 2013.

Solis faces a sentence of no greater than 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release, a fine of $250,000, and 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.

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 today. Assistant U.S. Attorney Suzanne Sullivan Jacobus of Lelling’s Major Crimes Unit is prosecuting the case.

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