Previously Removed Alien Sentenced To 15 Months For Illegal Re-Entry

ALBANY, NEW YORK – Epifanio Andrade-Perez, 33, of Amsterdam, New York, was sentenced yesterday to 15 months of imprisonment for illegal re-entry by Chief United States District Court Judge Gary L. Sharpe in Albany, New York, announced United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and Field Office Director for ICE Enforcement & Removal Operations (ERO), Michael T. Phillips, Buffalo, NY.

On October 21, 2014, Andrade-Perez gave a false name to a Deputy Montgomery County Sherriff. ICE officers responded and determined that Andrade-Perez was an alien, a citizen of Mexico and that he had been removed from the United States to Mexico in 2008.

The case was investigated by the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Albany, New York and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Edward P. Grogan.
