Man gets 33 months for illegal re-entry
Honduran had gang-related conviction in Va.
A 23-year-old Honduran man was sentenced to 33 months in prison for illegal re-entry of a felon, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said.
Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents from the Nogales Station apprehended Jose Manuel Andrade Reyes in October for attempting to enter the United States, the Border Patrol said.
During processing, agents found that Andrade has a 2010 conviction in Virginia for unlawful wounding — causing bodily harm with intent to disfigure, disable or kill. The charge was considered gang-related, the Border Patrol said.
The illegal re-entry case was turned over to the U.S. Attorney's Office. Andrade was sentenced to prison for illegal re-entry on March 1.
After serving his sentence, Andrade will be formally removed from the United States and banned for life from all legalization processes, the Border Patrol said.
