Three people indicted for illegally reentering the U.S. after multiple deportations

Three people were indicted for illegally reentering the United States after multiple deportations.

Misael De Jesus Constanza Hernandez, 29, a citizen of El Salvador, was found in Ohio last month after having previously been deported three times, according to the indictment.

Victor Guadalupe Gonzales, 46, a citizen of Mexico, was found in Ohio last month after having been previously deported twice, according to the indictment.

Rafael Eustate-Santos, a citizen of the Dominican Republic, was found in Ohio last month after having been previously deported twice, according to the indictment.

The cases were investigated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Department of Homeland Security. They are being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Kathryn Andrachick, Brian Deckert and Danielle Angeli.

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.
