PORTLAND, Ore. – Antonio Oswaldo Burgos, 48, of Portland, made an initial appearance today in federal court before U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul Papak.
The court unsealed a three-count indictment alleging Burgos, on three separate occasions, attempted to bribe a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deportation officer. Burgos is accused of offering to pay the officer in order to facilitate the deportation of his estranged wife and daughter.
Burgos was released pending trial. A two-day jury trial is scheduled for August 28, 2018 before U.S. District Court Judge Michael H. Simon.
An indictment is only an accusation of a crime, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
This case was jointly investigated by ICE’s Office of Professional Responsibility and Homeland Security Investigations.
