Illegal Alien Living in New Vienna Sentenced to Prison

An illegal alien who had been living in New Vienna has been sentenced to prison.

The U.S. Department of Justice says 35-year old Eliceo Tecpile-Tzompaztle, a Mexican native and citizen, admitted he illegally re-entered the United States without permission after he was deported in 2002, 2007 and twice in 2008. He also admitted that after illegally returning to the U.S., he used a fake Social Security Number when he completed state and federal tax forms in 2014 at a New Vienna company where he unlawfully worked.

Tecpile-Tzompaxtle pleaded guilty earlier this fall to misusing a Social Security Number and illegal re-entry. He was sentenced to five months in prison last week.

He is currently being held in U.S. Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.
