Bangor, Maine:  United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Manual Antonio Guerra-Nolasco, 36, of Canton Matelapa, El Salvador pled guilty today in U.S. District Court to unlawfully re-entering the United States after having been removed from the country.

According to court records, on May 30, 2016, Guerra-Nolasco was arrested after a traffic stop in Orrington, Maine when a Penobscot Count Deputy Sherriff learned that the pick-up truck he was driving was not registered and that his California driver’s license had been issued in the name of another person.  Immigration records revealed that Guerra-Nolasco had been removed from the United States on August 20, 2007. 

Guerra-Nolasco faces up to two years in prison and a $250,000 fine.  He will be sentenced after completion of a presentence investigation report by the U.S. Probation Office.

The investigation was conducted by the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Border Patrol.
