Jamaican man charged with illegally reentering the U.S.

A federal grand jury returned an indictment charging Jamaican citizen Trevor Arthur Junior Campbell, 41, for re-entering the United States illegally after being deported to Jamaica, said Carole S. Rendon, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio. 

Campbell was found in the United States after being previously deported on August 11, 1997. Campbell previously entered the United States and was deported in 1997 after being convicted of an aggravated felony and was later found in Cleveland, according to the indictment.

Assistant United States Attorney Karrie D. Howard is prosecuting the case following an investigation by the United States Immigration and Custom 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.
