MARTINSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Naun Romero, of Honduras, was indicted today by a federal grand jury on a reentry charge, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Romero, also known as Santos Coello, age 33, is charged with one count of “Reentry of a Removed Alien.” Romero, having previously been removed from the United States, is accused of being in Randolph County illegally in October 2018. 

Romero 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 Brandon S. Flower is prosecuting the cases on behalf of the government. The Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigated. 

An indictment is merely an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
