SCRANTON- The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that on January 10, 2023, United States District Judge Robert D. Mariani sentenced Juan Esdrada-Beret, age 41, a native and citizen of Mexico, to 8 months’ imprisonment, for illegally reentering the United States after being previously removed following a prior illegal reentry conviction.

According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, after two prior removals from the United States to Mexico, Esdrada-Beret was arrested in 2017 in Schuylkill County and prosecuted in the Middle District of Pennsylvania for Illegal Reentry.  He was sentenced to a period of imprisonment of time served (113 days) on April 10, 2018 and removed through Hidalgo, Texas on April 25, 2018. Sometime thereafter, Esdrada-Beret once again reentered the United States without the required permissions. 

This case was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). Assistant United States Attorney Jeffery St John prosecuted the case.
