Alien Found in Oswego County Sentenced For Illegally Re-entering United States

SYRACUSE, NEW YORK – Jesus Alberto Medina-Montes, age 24, a citizen of Mexico, was sentenced today to a term of time served after being convicted of illegally re-entering the United States. 

The announcement was made by United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and U.S. Border Patrol Chief Patrol Agent John C. Pfeifer. 

Medina-Montes was arrested on April 8, 2016 after being found in Parish, New York.  He pled guilty on June 17, 2016 to the charge of illegal re-entry of a removed alien.  As part of his plea, he admitted that after being removed from the United States in 2010, he unlawfully came back into the country.  Medina-Montes, who served about 3 months in jail on this conviction, will likely be placed into removal proceedings and returned to Mexico. 

This case was investigated by the U.S. Border Patrol and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert S. Levine.
