HARRISBURG - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced today that Raul Martinez-Perez, age 48, of Mexico, was indicted yesterday by a federal grand jury with illegal re-entry into the United States by a previously deported alien. 

According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, Martinez-Perez was previously deported from the United States to Mexico in June 1999.  He is alleged to have illegally reentered the United States sometime after June 1999 and was found in the United States in Adams County, Pennsylvania after being arrested on state felony charges.

This matter was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). Assistant United States Attorney Paul J. Miovas, Jr. is prosecuting the case.

Based on his prior criminal history, Martinez-Perez faces a maximum penalty of 20 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.
