BUFFALO, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Armando Navarrete-Dominguez, 29, of Mexico, who was convicted of illegally re-entering the United States after a conviction for an aggravated felony, was sentenced to time served (one year) by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephanie Lamarque, who handled the case, stated that on February 15, 2017, the defendant was taken into custody after a vehicle and traffic stop on Grand Island, NY. A records check revealed that Navarrete-Dominguez was a citizen of Mexico who had previously been convicted in North Carolina of sexual exploitation of a minor and of breaking and entering. The defendant was deported and removed from the United States to Mexico in 2009 following his convictions in North Carolina.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by U.S. Border Patrol, under the direction of Patrol Agent-in-Charge Steven Oldman.
