HARRISBURG – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that on March 2, 2022, Genrry Estuardo Lopez-Ramirez a/k/a Alex Ariel Lopez-Morales, a/k/a Henry Lopez-Ramirez, age 22, was indicted by a federal grand jury for illegal re-entry into the United States by a previously deported alien. 

According to United States Attorney John C. Gurganus, Lopez-Ramirez was previously deported from the United States to Mexico in March 2019.  He is alleged to have illegally reentered the United States again sometime after March 2019.  He was found in the United States in Franklin County, Pennsylvania, after an August 2, 2021, arrest by a Chambersburg police officer, on charges which eventually led to a conviction for DUI: Controlled Substance. 

This matter was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). Assistant United States Attorney Joanne M. Sanderson is prosecuting the case.

If convicted, Lopez-Ramirez 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.
