Mexican Citizen Sentenced For Illegally Reentering U.S.

MADISON, WIS. -- John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Isaias Flores-Rosas, 45, of Mexico, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge James D. Peterson to one year and one day in federal prison for illegally reentering the United States.  He pleaded guilty to the charge on November 17, 2014. 

Flores-Rosas was deported from the United States following his conviction for substantial battery in 2009 in Jefferson County.  He illegally returned to the United States and was convicted of fourth degree sexual assault and false imprisonment in September 2013 in Jefferson County.  He was turned over to federal authorities following completion of his sentence. 

Prior to his deportation in 2009, Flores-Rosas was permitted to voluntarily leave the United States in 1999 and 2002.       

The charge against Flores-Rosas was the result of an investigation conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Meredith Duchemin.
