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

Julio Cantoral Monterroso, 39, a Guatemalan national previously residing in Great Falls, R.I., was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge F. Dennis Saylor IV to seven months in prison. Monterroso will be subject to deportation upon completion of his sentence. In August 2018, Monterroso pleaded guilty today to one count of illegal reentry of a deported alien.

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