Mexican National Sentenced to 10 Years in U.S. Prison for Illegal Re-entry and Prior Felony Convictions

In a federal court in Del Rio, a Mexican national, Gabriel Aguado-Contreras, 42, from Leon, Guanajuato, was sentenced to 120 months in prison for illegal re-entry into the United States.

U.S. Border Patrol agents encountered Aguado-Contreras near Brackettville in January 2019. During processing at the Brackettville Border Patrol Station, it was revealed that he had been deported multiple times since 2006 and had prior convictions for multiple felonies. Aguado-Contreras, arrested on January 18, 2019, has been in federal custody since.

The 10-year prison sentence includes credit for time served since his arrest. U.S. Attorney Jaime Esparza for the Western District of Texas stated, "The lengthy sentence is certainly reflective of the charge, and I appreciate the work of our partners at the Border Patrol in helping us keep our communities and citizens safe."

The case was investigated by the U.S. Border Patrol.
