Two indicted for illegally reentering the U.S.

Two men were indicted for illegally reentering the United States.

Ignacio Alvarez-Perez, 25, a citizen of Guatemala, was found in Stark County after having been previously deported, according to the indictment.

Raul Fernando Dominguez, 27, a citizen of Mexico, was found in Salem, Ohio after having been previously deported, according to the indictment.

Assistant United States Attorney Kathryn G. Andrachik is prosecuting the cases following investigations by the Bureau of 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.
