Sanchez-Rosas, a citizen of Mexico, was removed from the United States to Mexico on three separate occasions in 2001.  On August 24, 2017, he was encountered and arrested by an ICE Officer in Guilderland, New York. A fingerprint check of Sanchez-Rosas resulted in the discovery of his prior immigration history and the defendant admitted that he returned to the United States without permission following the 2001 removals.   


As a result of his conviction, Sanchez-Rosas faces up to 2 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 when he is sentenced by Senior U.S. District Court Judge Norman A. Mordue on January 18, 2018.  A defendant’s sentence is imposed by a judge based on the particular statute the defendant is charged with violating, the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, and other factors.    


This case was investigated by the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Albany, NY, and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Edward P. Grogan.
