Honduran Man Sentenced For Illegal Reentry After Deportation

            CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE –United States Attorney Emily Gray Rice announced  that Milson Reyes-Alvarez, of Honduras, was sentenced to time already served since his arrest on February 10, 2016, following his  guilty plea to illegally reentering the United States after having been previously deported.  Reyes-Alvarez’s plea and sentencing were held the same day under a program used by the United States Attorney’s Office to quickly sentence and deport defendants found in New Hampshire after having been previously deported.

            In December of 2015, a Deportation Officer developed information which indicated that Milson Reyes-Alvarez was present in the United States after having been deported on one previous occasion.  In order to confirm this information, the Deportation Officer interviewed Reyes-Alvarez on February 10, 2016.  The defendant confirmed his true name and that he was illegally present in the United States without any immigration documents.  Reyes-Alvarez was then taken into ICE custody. A subsequent fingerprint comparison definitively identified Reyes-Alvarez as 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.
