Two people indicted for reentering the U.S. after multiple deportations

Two people were indicted in federal court for illegally reentering the United States.

Fermin Cabrera-Flores, 46, a citizen of Mexico, was found in Painesville on July 13 after having been previously deported seven times following convictions for domestic violence, evading arrest, illegal reentry, criminal trespass and other crimes, according to court documents.

Lazaro Oscar Romero-Colindres, 40, a citizen of Honduras, was found in Amherst on July 10, after having been deported three times, according to court documents.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Brad J. Beeson is prosecuting the case following an investigation by 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
