Previous Deported Alien Sentenced For Illegal Re-Entry

SCRANTON – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced today that on October 11, 2017, United States District Court Judge Robert D. Mariani sentenced Gregorio Marmolejo, age 44, of Mexico, to 13 months’ imprisonment for illegal re-entry into the United States. 

 

According to United States Attorney Bruce D. Brandler, Marmolejo pleaded guilty to unlawfully returning to the United States after having been deported to Mexico in 2008.  Marmolejo was removed from the country after a 1992 conviction in New York for an attempted sale of cocaine.

 

The case was investigated by the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) and the Pennsylvania State Police.  Assistant United States Attorney Sean A. Camoni prosecuted the case.
