STAMFORD, Conn. -- A citizen of Honduras last residing in Stamford pleaded guilty Friday to re-entering the United States after being deported.
Carlos Anariba, 27, also known as Marvin Guillen, pleaded guilty in New Haven to one count of re-entry of a removed alien, according to John H. Durham, U.S. Attorney for Connecticut.
According to court documents, in November 2008, Anariba, using the name Marvin Guillen, was charged in Stamford with assault, weapons, breach of peace and forgery offenses. After posting bond, he was released to the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and in March 2009 he was deported to Honduras.
Anariba subsequently returned to the U.S., Durham said.
In October 2014, Anariba was arrested under his real name by Stamford Police on burglary charges, and was arrested again in February 2016 on larceny charges in Stamford, according to court documents.
A DNA check connected the three cases and confirmed that Anariba and Guillen were the same person, and in October 2016, Anariba was sentenced to 25 months in prison, Durham said.
Anariba is scheduled to be sentenced for the re-entry charge on Feb. 13, at which point he faces a maximum of two years in prison. He is detained pending sentencing.
