HIDALGO COUNTY, TX (CBS News 4) – After her second drunken driving conviction, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement wants to deport a Mexican woman — again.
Marisol Guevara-Perez, 42, of Alamo pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated, a Class A misdemeanor, on Monday, according to Hidalgo County court records. It was her second drunken driving conviction.
County Court at Law Judge Rodolfo “Rudy” Gonzalez sentenced Guevara to a year in prison, but he suspended the sentence and placed her on probation.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement detained Guevara at the Hidalgo County jail the next day.
Guevara is a Mexican citizen who wasn’t legally present in the United States, according to the federal criminal complaint against her.
“Record checks revealed the defendant was formally removed from the United States to Mexico for the fourth (4th) time on February 5, 2014 via the Laredo, Texas Port of Entry,” according to the criminal complaint.
Guevara apparently returned to the United States 10 days later by crossing the river near Progreso, according to the criminal complaint.
She’s now charged with illegal re-entry.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Dorina Ramos ordered Guevara held without bond.
Court records don’t list an attorney for Guevara, who remains in federal custody.
