“BOSTON – A Mexican man pleaded guilty today to illegally reentering the United States after deportation.

Ramon Alfaro-Orona, 39, pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful reentry of a deported alien. U.S. District Court Judge Margaret R. Guzman scheduled sentencing for Aug. 5, 2024. In September 2023, Alfaro-Orona was charged by criminal complaint.

Alfaro-Orona was deported from the United States on eight prior occasions, with the most recent being Sept. 30, 2014. Sometime after his September 2014 removal, Alfaro-Orona unlawfully reentered the United States. On Aug. 23, 2023, Alfaro-Orona was taken into custody by immigration authorities following his arraignment in Leominster District Court for three counts of larceny by check over $1,200.

Alfaro-Orona was convicted for unlawful reentry on two prior occasions in November 2013 and March 2014.

The charge of unlawful reentry of a deported alien provides for a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release, and a fine of up to $250,000. The defendant will be subject to deportation proceedings upon completion of an imposed sentence. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and statutes which govern the determination of a sentence in a criminal case.

Acting United States Attorney Joshua S. Levy and Todd M. Lyons, Field Office Director, Boston, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian Sullivan of the Major Crimes Unit is prosecuting the case.”-Massachusetts Department of Justice.
