Two charged with illegally reentering U.S. after deportation
Two people were indicted in federal court for illegally reentering the United States, U.S. Attorney Justin E. Herdman said.
Jose Guillermo Uribe Perez, 30, a citizen of Mexico, was found in Austintown in December 2017 after having been previously deported to Mexico, according to the indictment.
Timateo Calel-Herrera, 32, a citizen of Guatemala, was found in Dover on Jan. 22 after having been previously deported three times to Guatemala, according to the indictment.
Assistant United States Attorney Brad J. Beeson is prosecuting the cases following investigations by the 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.
