Honduran Man Sentenced After Pleading Guilty To Illegally Re-Entering The United States After Previous Deportation

CONCORD, N.H. – United States Attorney Emily Gray Rice announced today that Salvador Lopez-Hernandez, of Honduras, was sentenced to 8 months in prison after pleading guilty, on August 16, 2016, to illegally re-entering the United States after having been previously deported.

 

Silva-Hernandez was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement Deportation Officers on June 15, 2016, after they developed information that Lopez-Hernandez was present in the United States after having been deported on one previous occasion.

 

Silva-Hernandez faces likely deportation 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 prosecuted this case.
