Honduran Man Guilty Of Illegally Reentering The United States After Three Previous Deportations

          CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Acting United States Attorney Donald Feith announced that Carlos Peres-Ovando, of Honduras, pled guilty today in United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire to illegally reentering the United States after having been previously deported. Peres-Ovando was sentenced to time served and will once again face deportation.

          Documents filed with the United States District Court established that Peres-Ovando was working at the El Tapatia restaurant in Merrimack, New Hampshire. Agents with the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement located Peres-Ovando at the restaurant on March 25, 2015.   Peres-Ovando initially denied that he was Carlos Peres-Ovando, but subsequently admitted his true identity and citizenship to the agents. A fingerprint comparison identified Peres-Ovando as having previously been deported in 2006 from Texas, in 2013 from Louisiana, and in 2014 from Texas.

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