Salvadoran National Pleads Guilty and Is Sentenced for Illegal Reentry after Deportation

A Salvadoran national pleaded guilty today in fed­eral court in Boston to ille­gally reentering the United States after being deported.

Following the acceptance of his plea, U.S. District Court Judge Indira Talwani sentenced Oscar Armand Mejia, 42, of Lynn, to a sentence of “time-served,” approximately 6 weeks’ im­prisonment. Following the sentencing hearing, Mejia will be transferred to ICE custody and be placed into removal proceedings.

According to court re­cords, Mejia was arrested in 2008 by the Brockton Police and charged with assault and battery and drunk driving. Mejia was later convicted and ordered to serve a sentence of 90 days. After completing his sentence in Nov. 4, 2008, he was placed into removal proceedings and deported to El Salvador. Sometime after his removal, Mejia il­legally reentered the United States, was subsequently arrested by the Stoughton Police, and charged with drunk driving. Mejia ap­peared in state court, posted bail and was released. ICE was not contacted at that time. Mejia later defaulted in state court by failing to appear and a warrant was issued for his arrest. On Feb. 24, 2020, ICE located and arrested Mejia.
