ELKINS, WEST VIRGINIA – Adonai Wilfredo Parada, of El Salvador, was indicted by a federal grand jury today on an illegal re-entry charge, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Parada, age 39, was indicted on one count of “Reentry of Removed Alien.” Parada is accused of being in the United States illegally after being removed as an alien in 2015. Parada was allegedly found in Ranson, West Virginia on December 7, 2017.

Parada faces up to two years incarceration and a fine of up to $250,000. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant. 

Assistant U.S. Attorney Lara K. Omps-Botteicher is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government. The Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement is investigating. 
An indictment is merely an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
