NORWALK, Conn. – A citizen of El Salvador who was arrested in Norwalk last summer has been sentenced to 37 months in federal prison, a press release said.
Danilo Alvardado-Carbajar, 29, was sentenced by Senior United States District Judge Alfred V. Covello in Hartford for illegally re-entering the United States after being deported, said David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, in the press release.
Alvardado-Carbajar was convicted of sexual assault in the second degree and deported to his native El Salvador in May 2007, Fein said. He returned in May 2012 without getting the consent of the Attorney General of the United States or his successor, the Secretary for the Department of Homeland Security, Fein said. That is illegal.
Norwalk Police arrested him June 22 on a state probation violation, Fein said. He has been detained ever since as police discovered that he was in the country illegally, Fein said.
Alvardado-Carbajar pleaded guilty Dec. 13 to one count of illegal re-entry of a removed alien.
This matter was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Criminal Alien Program. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Neeraj N. Patel.
