A man from Mexico who has been deported six times was sentenced to 10 months in federal prison, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.
Perfecto Morales-Santiago, 42, who has been living in Kansas City, Kansas, pleaded guilty to one count of unlawfully re-entering the United States after being deported. He admitted he was arrested for drunken driving in January 2020 in Wyandotte County, Kansas. His first deportation was in 2010 and his most recent was in 2017.
McAllister commended Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Assistant U.S. Attorney Ryan Huschka for their work on the case.
