PORTLAND, Maine:  A Honduran national was sentenced today in federal court in Portland for being found in the United States after removal, U.S. Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced.

Following the acceptance of his plea, U.S. District Judge D. Brock Hornby sentenced Angel Isaula, 67, to time served (approximately three months).

According to court records, on January 7, 2020, U.S. Border Patrol agents stopped a van in Turner, Maine. Isaula, who was inside the van, told the agents that he was in the U.S. illegally, after having been removed on two prior occasions. Immigration records showed that he had been removed from the U.S. in September 2013 and again in June 2014.

The U.S. Border Patrol investigated the case.
