SYRACUSE, NEW YORK – Pedro Triminio-Caballero, age 41, and a citizen of Honduras, was sentenced today to time served (54 days in jail) for illegally re-entering the United States.


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


As part of his guilty plea, Triminio-Caballero admitted that he was a citizen of Honduras, and that he returned to the United States after he was previously removed to Honduras. Triminio-Caballero was removed from the United States to Honduras on three prior occasions: on October 6, 1996, March 20, 2005, and on April 16, 2012. Since his last re-entry, Triminio-Caballero had been residing in Miami, Florida.


On March 15, 2017, Triminio-Caballero was arrested by Border Patrol Agents in Champlain, New York. Agents encountered Triminio-Caballero in a taxi that was stopped by Border Patrol on a road in Champlain just south of the border.


Following his sentencing, Triminio-Caballero was remanded to the custody of the Department of Homeland Security, which will place Triminio-Caballero into removal proceedings.


This case was investigated by United States Border Patrol and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Edward P. Grogan.
