Deported St. Lucia National Charged with Illegal Re-Entry

Isidore Francis Isidore, 61, of St. Lucia, was detained Monday pending further proceedings stemming from his April 28 arrest on charges of illegal re-entry into the United States, U.S. Attorney Gretchen C.F. Shappert announced.

Isidore made his initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Ruth Miller on Monday after being charged by a criminal complaint.

According to the complaint, on or about April 28, Isidore arrived in U.S. Customs water around the Red Hook area of St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, on a private watercraft. He had previously been ordered for removal in 2014, after having been convicted of a crime involving moral turpitude.

Illegal re-entry after deportation or removal carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

This case is a result of an investigation by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Anna A. Vlasova.
