BOSTON – An Ecuadorian national was sentenced today in federal court in Boston for illegally reentering the United States after being deported.
Luis Ricardo Aucacama-Calle was sentenced by Chief U.S. District Court Judge F. Dennis Saylor IV to “time-served” (approximately 13 months) to be followed by one year of supervised release. Aucacama-Calle, who pleaded guilty in November 2019, is now subject to removal proceedings.
In February 2019, Aucacama-Calle was encountered by immigration officials at the Barnstable House of Corrections. At that time, Aucacama-Calle was serving a one year sentence imposed by the Barnstable District Court for operating under the influence of alcohol. Aucacama-Calle was interviewed, admitted his alienage and two previous removals (2015 and 2016). His fingerprints were obtained to confirm his identity. Upon completion of his state sentence, Aucacama-Calle was transferred into federal custody where he has remained.
United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling and Marcos D. Charles, Acting Field Office Director, Boston, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations, made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth G. Shine of Lelling’s Major Crimes Unit prosecuted the case.
