Salvadoran National Sentenced for Illegal Reentry After Deportation

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

Jose Antonio Reyes-Ramos, 33, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Leo T. Sorokin to time served (approximately 81 days) and one year of supervised release. Reyes-Ramos will be subject to deportation proceedings. On June 28, 2018, Reyes-Ramos pleaded guilty to one count of illegal reentry of a deported alien.

Reyes-Ramos was deported from the United States to El Salvador in 2011 and then again in 2012. In 2017, after Reyes-Ramos had illegally returned to the United States, he was arrested on Cape Cod for sexual conduct for a fee. On April 19, 2018, Reyes-Ramos was taken into immigration custody.

United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling and Rebecca J. Adducci, Interim Field Office Director, Boston, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations, made the announcement. Assistant U.S. Attorney David G. Tobin of Lelling’s Major Crimes Unit prosecuted the case.
