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

PITTSBURGH - A citizen of Mexico has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on a charge of violating federal immigration laws, Acting United States Attorney Soo C. Song announced today.

The one-count indictment named Samuel Quib-Chub, age 28, of Mexico, as the sole defendant.

According to the indictment, on or about January 24, 2017, Quib-Chub was found in Penn Hills, Pennsylvania, after having unlawfully re-entered the United States following removal on four previous occasions.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of two (2) years in prison, a fine of $250,000 or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Adam N. Hallowell is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) 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.
