Man From Mexico Charged With Illegal Reentry After Deportation

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a man from Mexico has been indicted by a federal grand jury.

Jesus Ochoa Aguirre, age 30, was indicted by a federal grand jury on October 10, 2012 for Illegal Reentry after Deportation. Ochoa Aguirre appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on June 6, 2013, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is 20 years of imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, or both; 3 years of supervised release, an additional 2 years of supervised release upon revocation; and a mandatory $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.

The charge is merely an accusation, and Ochoa Aguirre is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by Homeland Security Investigations. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathryn N. Rich is prosecuting the case.

Ochoa Aguirre was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
