For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Maine

Bangor, Maine:  United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced that Zafar Iqbal-Khan, 46, previously of Pakistan, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Magistrate Judge John C. Nivison to eight months in prison for failure to comply with the terms of release under supervision.  The defendant pled guilty on June 8, 2018.

According to court records, in 1999, Khan, a citizen of Pakistan, entered the United States as a non-immigrant visitor. He was required to depart by February 2000, but never did.  In September 2005, he was ordered removed by an immigration judge.  In December 2006, January 2009, and June 2015, he was released from immigration custody after executing Orders of Supervision that required him to not commit any crimes.  On February 23, 2018, Khan pled guilty in a Maine district court to operating under the influence, operating a vehicle without a license, failure to appear in court, and forgery. 

The case was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations.
