Honduran National Sentenced for Illegal Reentry After Deportation

Defendant previously deported four times

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

William Maradiaga-Oseguera, 32, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Leo T. Sorokin to one year in prison and three years of supervised release. Maradiaga-Oseguera will be subject to deportation proceedings upon completion of his sentence. In January 2018, Maradiaga-Oseguera pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful reentry of a deported alien.

On Aug. 29, 2017, law enforcement officers in Boston encountered Maradiaga-Oseguera and determined him to be illegally present in the United States. Maradiaga-Oseguera was previously deported on March 27, 2009; March 17, 2012; July 9, 2012; and Nov. 13, 2013.

United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling and Michael Shea, Acting Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations in Boston, made the announcement. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth G. Shine of Lelling’s Major Crimes Unit prosecuted the case.
