BUFFALO, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. announced today that Josue Joel Castaneda-Cuyuch, 31, a citizen of Guatemala, who was convicted of illegal reentry after having been previously deported and removed from the United States, was sentenced to time served (seven months) by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Marie P. Grisanti, who handled the case, stated that on September 11, 2014, the defendant, an alien who had previously been deported and removed from the United States on August 20, 2010, was found in the United States without having obtained the consent of the Attorney General of the United States.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the United States Border Patrol, under the direction Steven J. Oldman, Patrol Agent in Charge.
