Madison, Wisconsin - The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) reported in a news release that on Wednesday, Victor Herrera-Lopez, 27, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Barbara B. Crabb to 40 months (3 years and 4 months) in federal prison. Herrera-Lopez pleaded guilty to illegally re-entering the United States after he had been previously deported twice.
On Nov. 6, 2010, Herrera-Lopez was arrested in Beloit, Wisconsin, for driving while intoxicated. On May 3, 2011, he was released to ICE custody after a records check revealed that Herrera-Lopez was convicted in Madison in 2007 of possession with the intent to deliver cocaine.
An immigration judge ordered Herrera-Lopez removed from the United States in December 2003, and he was deported three days later. He was encountered in the United States and deported a second time in November 2008.
U.S. Attorney Peter Jarosz, Western District of Wisconsin, prosecuted this case. The sentence followed an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).
