Honduran Man Pleads Guilty To Illegally Reentering The United States After Having Been Previously Deported

            CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE –United States Attorney Emily Gray Rice announced today that Salvador Lopez-Hernandez, of Honduras, has pleaded guilty to reentering the United States after having been deported previously.

            Lopez-Hernandez pleaded guilty before United States District Judge Landya B. McCafferty to an indictment that had been returned by a federal grand jury on July 13, 2016.

            According to court filings and statements in Court, a Deportation Officer developed information indicating that Salvador Lopez-Hernandez, a Honduran national, was present in the United States after having been deported on a previous occasion.  On June 15, 2016, Deportation Officers approached the defendant who confirmed that his name was Salvador Lopez-Hernandez and that he was illegally present in the United States without any immigration documents.  His identity later was confirmed through fingerprint information.

            Lopez-Hernandez will be sentenced at 10:00 AM on November 22, 2016, and will be deported after serving his sentence.

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