Bangor, Maine:  United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Manual Antonio Guerra-Nolasco, 36, of Canton Matelapa, El Salvador, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge John A. Woodcock, Jr. to eight months in prison for unlawfully re-entering the United States after having been removed from the country.  He pled guilty on August 5, 2016.

According to court records, on May 30, 2016, the defendant was arrested after a traffic stop in Orrington, Maine when a Penobscot County 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 the defendant had been removed from the United States on August 20, 2007. 

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