NEWS / Mexican man sentenced to 6 years in prison for illegally re-entering the US

TYLER, Texas - A 23-year-old Mexican man was sentenced Tuesday to more than six years in federal prison for illegally re-entering the Unites States after having been deported following his aggravated felony convictions. The sentence was announced by U.S. Attorney John M. Bales, Eastern District of Texas; the case was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Juan Manuel Padron-Leyva, also known as, Ceaser Chavez, of Mexico City, Mexico, pleaded guilty on May 28 to being a criminal alien found unlawfully present in the United States after having been previously deported. He was sentenced on Oct. 13 to 73 months in federal prison by U.S. District Judge Leonard E. Davis.

According to information presented in court, on Feb. 7, 2009, Padron-Leyva was arrested in Titus County on public intoxication charges. He was then transferred to Gregg County to face state prostitution charges. On March 8, ICE agents discovered Padron-Levya at the Gregg County, Texas, jail. The ICE investigation revealed that Padron-Leyva was a Mexican citizen who had been convicted in Kentucky for various crimes, including: trafficking in a controlled substance, assault-second segree, sexual abuse – first degree, and possessing a controlled substance in the Circuit Court for Bourbon County, Ky. ICE deported him in September 2007.

On April 8, 2009, a federal grand jury returned a one-count indictment charging Padron-Levya with being unlawfully present in the United States, in Smith County, Texas, after having been previously deported. Padron-Levya had not obtained the consent of the Attorney General of the United States, or his successor the Secretary for Homeland Security to reapply for admission into the United States since his previous deportation.
