HARRISBURG, PA — The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Juan Carlos Delcid-Diaz, age 33, of Honduras, was indicted Wednesday by a federal grand jury on a charge of Illegal Reentry.

According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, the indictment alleges that Delcid-Diaz was removed from the United States on or about November 3, 2008, through San Antonio, Texas, and it is alleged that he reentered the United States without first obtaining legal permission to do so.  The indictment also alleges that on September 28, 2022, Delcid-Diaz was encountered in York County, Pennsylvania.

The case was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jaime M. Keating is prosecuting the case.

The maximum penalty under federal law for this offense is two years of imprisonment, a term of supervised release following imprisonment, and a fine. A sentence following a finding of guilt is imposed by the Judge after consideration of the applicable federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.

Information, a criminal complaint, or an arrest is not a declaration of guilt. A suspect, arrestee, or defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
