CONCORD – A Colombian national was sentenced on January 9, 2024 in federal court in Concord for his illegal reentry into the United States after previously being deported, United States Attorney Jane E. Young announces.

Jheisson Rizo Suarez, 39, was sentencing by Chief U.S. District Court Judge Landya B. McCafferty to 24 months in prison and one year of supervised release. Rizo Suarez pleaded guilty to one count of reentry after deportation.  On September 18, 2023, the defendant pleaded guilty to the illegal reentry charge.

“The U.S. Attorney’s Office will continue to aggressively prosecute those, like the defendant, who commit violent crimes while in the United States illegally,” U.S. Attorney Jane E. Young said.

On July 9, 2021, the defendant was arrested by the Dover Police Department in connection with a residential burglary in progress.  The subsequent investigation revealed that the defendant was illegally in the United States, after having been previously deported on or about January 28, 2013.

The Dover Police Department and the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement led the investigation.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Ward.
