Man from Mexico Sentenced for Illegal Reentry After Deportation

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of South Dakota

Acting United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Mexican Citizen convicted of Illegal Reentry After Deportation was sentenced on July 28, 2015, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Pedro Reyes-Moreno, age 28, was sentenced to time served of 203 days, and a special assessment of $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Reyes-Moreno was indicted by a federal grand jury on December 2, 2014.  He pled guilty on June 3, 2015.

The conviction stems from an incident on or about December 1, 2014, when Reyes-Moreno, after having been previously deported from the United States in November of 2006 and June of 2012, was found back in the country.  Reyes-Moreno illegally re-entered the United States at unknown dates.  Reyes-Moreno did not obtain the consent of the Secretary of the United States Department of Homeland Security, and the Attorney General of the United States.

This case was investigated by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Carrie G. Sanderson prosecuted the case.

Reyes-Moreno was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service due to a detainer from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
