HARRISBURG – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Fausto Lorenzo-Gomez, age 31, was charged yesterday by a federal grand jury with illegal reentry into the United States by a previously deported alien. 

According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, Lorenzo-Gomez, a citizen of Honduras, had been deported in September 2019.  He is alleged to have illegally reentered the United States sometime after that date.  He was located in the United States in York County, Pennsylvania, during a traffic stop.

This matter was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jaime M. Keating.

Lorenzo-Gomez faces a maximum penalty of 2 years of imprisonment, a term of supervised release following imprisonment, and a fine.  A sentence following a finding of guilt is imposed by the Judge after consideration of the applicable federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.

Indictments are only allegations.  All persons charged are presumed to be innocent unless and until found guilty in court.
