            CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – United States Attorney Emily Gray Rice announced today that Silverio Lopez-Gutierrez, of Guatemala, was sentenced today after pleading guilty to illegally reentering the United States after having been previously deported.

            The case was investigated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Alfred Rubega.
