Jamaican National Pleads Guilty to Illegal Reentry After Deportation

BOSTON - A Jamaican national pleaded guilty today in federal court in Boston to illegally reentering the United States after being deported.  

Anthony Durrant, 51, a Jamaican national residing in Dorchester, pleaded guilty to one count of illegal reentry of a deported alien. U.S. Senior District Court Judge Douglas P. Woodlock scheduled sentencing for Sept. 13, 2018.

On Nov. 28, 2017, law enforcement officers in Boston encountered Durrant and determined him to be illegally present in the United States. Durrant was previously deported on July 26, 2012.

Durrant faces a sentence of no greater than 20 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.
