HARRISBURG – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that on November 30, 2021, Ramon Tavarez-Ramirez, age 49, was sentenced to time served of eight months’ imprisonment followed by one year of supervised release, by United States District Court Judge Sylvia Rambo for illegal re-entry of a previously deported alien.

According to United States Attorney John C. Gurganus, Tavarez-Ramirez pleaded guilty to having illegally reentered the United States sometime after his last removal in February 2003 following a conviction for a felony.  In reentering the United States, Tavarez-Ramirez eluded examination or inspection by immigration officers.  He was found in Adams County on March 21, 2021, when arrested for driving under the influence by the Eastern Adams Regional Police Department. 

This matter was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).  Assistant United States Attorney Joanne M. Sanderson prosecuted the case.
