ALBANY, NEW YORK – Dario Sanchez-Rosas, age 56, and a citizen of Mexico, was sentenced today to 6 months in prison for illegally re-entering the United States.

Senior United States District Judge Norman A. Mordue also ordered Sanchez-Rosas to serve a 1-year term of supervised release should he remain in the United States after completion of the prison term. Sanchez-Rosas will be processed for removal from the United States when he is released from prison.     


This case was investigated by ICE-ERO and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Edward P. Grogan.
