(COUNCIL BLUFFS) A citizen of Mexico was sentenced to 40 months imprisonment for illegal entry after deportation.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa says Luis Conde-Alcala was sentenced on Tuesday for being an illegal alien found in the United States after deportation without proper consent. United States District Judge, John Jarvey, also ordered Conde-Alcala to serve a three year term of supervised release following incarceration.
Conde- Alcala entered a guilty plea being in the United States illegally on May 5, 2011. On September 8, 2010, Conde-Alcala was found by immigration officials in Pottawattamie County jail awaiting disposition on a state criminal charge. A check of immigration records showed that Conde-Alcala had been deported from the United States on several occasions prior to being found in Pottawattamie County jail; the last time being September 4, 2008. The records also revealed that Conde-Alcala had not applied for readmission from the Department of Homeland Security as required.
The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement Division and was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
