Quebec Man Sentenced for Harboring Illegal Aliens

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of New York

ALBANY, NEW YORK – Dylan Joseph David, age 26, of St. Regis, Quebec, was sentenced today to 16 months in prison, to be followed by 3 years of supervised release, for harboring two illegal aliens.  David was also sentenced to an additional 10 months in prison for violating the conditions of a term of federal supervised release that was imposed for a prior federal conviction. 


The announcement was made by U.S. Attorney Richard S. Hartunian and John C. Pfeifer, U.S. Border Patrol’s Chief Patrol Agent for the Swanton Sector.  U.S. District Judge David N. Hurd imposed the sentence in Utica, New York.


In July, David pled guilty to harboring two illegal aliens for the purpose of commercial advantage and private financial gain.  David harbored two women from Chile at a motel in Fort Covington, New York, in March 2016, after the Chileans snuck across the border into the United States. 


David’s conviction for harboring aliens was one of several violations of his federal supervised release for a prior drug crime, for which Judge Hurd imposed an additional 10 months of imprisonment.   


This case was investigated by the U.S. Border Patrol and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Edward P. Grogan.
