Mexican national sentenced to nine years in prison for re-entering U.S. repeatedly
By Dianne Solis

A Mexican national was sentenced Monday in Dallas to 109 months in federal prison for felony re-entry into the U.S. after a deportation. U.S. District Judge David C. Godbey sentenced Osvaldo Compian-Torres after evidence was presented at trial of previous prison sentences for two other re-entries, according to a news release from the U.S. attorney’s office. The Dallas Morning News featured Compian-Torres last month in a story about the growing practice of prosecuting illegal immigrants on criminal charges instead of under civil statutes for immigration infractions. The median prison term for a re-entry conviction was 15 months, according to a Freedom of Information Act project at Syracuse University that monitors judicial issues.
