Five people indicted for illegally reentering the U.S. after deportation

Five people were indicted for illegally reentering the United States.

Roberto Zuniga-Vega, 35, a citizen of Mexico, was found in Ohio after having been deported in September 2012, according to the indictment. 

Ascencion Carrillo-Hernandez, 56, a citizen of Mexico, was found in Ohio after having been deported in 1995, according to the indictment.

Jorge Mauricio Astudillo-Jimbo, 43, a citizen of Ecuador, was found in Ohio after having been previously deported four different times, according to the indictment.

Uriel Perez-Gonzalez, 27, a citizen of Mexico, was found in Ohio after having been previously deported four different times, according to the indictment.

Wilson Cerrato-Moran, 30, a citizen of Honduras, was found in Ohio after having been previously deported twice, according to the indictment.

The cases are unrelated. They were investigated by U.S. Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Department of Homeland Security.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense, and the characteristics of the violation.  In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  A defendant is entitled to a fair trial, in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt
