Sentencings for May 9 - May 10, 2018

FULGENSIO FIGUEROA-MENCIA, 44, of Las Loma, Honduras, was sentenced by Federal District Court Judge Alan B. Johnson on May 10, 2018 for illegal re-entry of a previously deported alien into the United States. Figueroa-Mencia was arrested in Laramie, Wyoming. He received time served, plus 10 days, was ordered to pay a $100.00 special assessment and is subject to deportation upon release from custody. This case was investigated by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

QUENTIN ELDON OLER, 31, of Glenrock, Wyoming, was sentenced by Federal District Court Judge Scott W. Skavdahl on May 9, 2018, for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Oler was sentenced to 33 months of imprisonment, consecutive to the judgment issued from the Seventh Judicial District Court, to be followed by three years of supervised release, and was ordered to pay a $100.00 special assessment. This case was investigated by the Casper Police Department, the Natrona County Sheriff’s Office, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. Attorney General Jeff Sessions reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally based strategies to reduce violent crime.
