Two indicted for illegally reentering the U.S. after multiple previous deportations

Two people were indicted for illegally reentering the United States.

Bonifacio Lopez-Herrera, 29, of Guatemala, was in the U.S. on Feb. 7, 2018. after having been previously deported twice, according to the indictment.

Jonathan Milla, 41, of Honduras, was found in Fairview Park after having been previously deported from the U.S. three times, according to the indictment.

The cases are being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathryn G. Andrachik (Milla) and Gene Crawford (Lopez-Herrera) following investigations by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of Homeland Security.

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, 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.
