CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – A Mexican man was indicted by a grand jury today for illegal reentry to the United States, United States Attorney Bill Powell announced.

Cecilio Granados-Hernandez, age 31, was indicted on one count of “Reentry of a Removed Alien.” Granados-Hernandez, having previously been removed from the United States twice, was alleged to be found in Harrison County in December 2017.

Granados-Hernandez 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 Traci M. Cook is prosecuting the case 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.
