Mexican Nationals Charged With Illegal Reentry

Two Mexican nationals were indicted on charges of unlawful reentry to the United States, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

Juan Ramon Valadez-Lara, age 26, is accused of unlawfully reentering the United States on May 12, 2014.

Joel Noe Fabian-Vazquez, age 27, of Mexico, , is accused of unlawfully reentering the United States on May 21, 2014.

The cases are not related.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, and 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.

The investigating agency in these cases is the Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection, Port Clinton, Ohio.  They are being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Noah P. Hood.
