BOSTON – A Salvadoran man was sentenced yesterday in federal court in Boston for illegally reentering the United States after deportation. 

Jose Rodriguez, 42, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton to 15 months in prison followed by one year of supervised release. Rodriguez will be subject to deportation proceedings upon completion of his sentence. On March 28, 2023, Rodriguez pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful reentry of a deported alien.  

Rodriguez was deported from the United States in April 2018 after serving a three-to-five-year prison sentence for a child rape conviction out of Suffolk County. Sometime after his April 2018 removal, Rodriguez illegally reentered the United States.

Acting United States Attorney Joshua S. Levy and Todd M. Lyons, Field Office Director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations in Boston made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark Grady of Levy’s Major Crimes Unit prosecuted the case.
