Canadian Man Sentenced 27 Months for Illegal Re-Entry

ALBANY, NEW YORK – Steven LEVESQUE, 41, was sentenced on Thursday, January 29, 2015 by the Honorable Lawrence E. Kahn to 27 months in federal prison, announced United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and James Spero, Special Agent-in-Charge, U.S Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations. The sentence follows LEVESQUE’s July 10, 2003 guilty plea to illegally re-entering the United States. After failing to appear for his February 12, 2004 sentencing proceeding, the Court found LEVESQUE obstructed the administration of justice. LEVESQUE received the maximum sentence under the United States Sentencing Guidelines.

This case was investigated by the United States Department of Homeland Security and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Wayne A. Myers.
