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.
