Mexico resident sentenced for illegal reentry

GREAT FALLS – U.S. Attorney Kurt G. Alme announced that on Monday, Cirilo Marcial-Ramirez, a Mexico citizen from Oaxaca, was sentenced to 174 days of time served and to one year of supervised release for conviction of illegal re-entry.

District Judge Brian M. Morris presided at the hearing.

Ramirez, 34, pleaded guilty to the charge on Oct. 29.

An investigation began in September 2017 when Great Falls Police Department officers contacted Ramirez regarding a traffic accident and arrested him for traffic offenses. Ramirez gave a false name and birth date, but investigators identified Ramirez through fingerprints. Ramirez had been deported from the United States in February 2010 after being convicted of felony and misdemeanor offenses in Kansas. He did not have permission as required by statute to re-enter the United States.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Paulette Stewart prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the Great Falls Police Department and Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
