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

BOSTON – Gilberto Ramirez-Ramirez, 27, pleaded guilty today in federal court in Boston to one count of unlawful reentry of a deported alien. U.S. Senior District Court Judge Rya W. Zobel scheduled sentencing for April 5, 2018.


In April 2017, law enforcement in Lynn encountered Ramirez-Ramirez and determined him to be illegally present in the United States. Ramirez-Ramirez had previously been deported on March 3, 2016.


The charge provides for a sentence of no greater than 10 years in prison, three years of supervised released, and a fine of up to $250,000. Ramirez-Ramirez will be subject to deportation upon completion of his sentence. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based on the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors. 


United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling and Michael S. Shea, Acting Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations in Boston, made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorney Suzanne Sullivan Jacobus of Lelling’s Major Crimes Unit is prosecuting the case.
