U.S. Attorney's Office, Western District of Pennsylvania

PITTSBURGH, PA – A resident of Guatemala, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on a charge of violating federal immigration laws, United States Attorney Eric G. Olshan announced today.

The one-count Indictment named Oscar Oloroso-Carranza, 27, as the sole defendant.

According to the Indictment presented to the court, on or about June 24, 2023, Oloroso-Carranza knowingly illegally reentered the United States as a previously removed alien.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of not more than 10 years in prison, a fine of not more than $250,000 or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement conducted the investigation leading to the Indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
