Guatemalan Man Sentenced For Illegal Reentry After Deportation

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

            Castro-Mejia was identified after being arrested in Conway, New Hampshire for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol on June 7, 2016.  A Deportation Officer later determined that he was a citizen of Guatemala who previously had been deported from the United States.  Castro-Mejia, who was arrested on June 7, 2016, and has been in custody since that time, was sentenced to time served.  He faces likely deportation.

            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.
