A Jamaican man has been sentenced to 57 months in a Virginia prison for illegally re-entering the United States by boat in February last year.
Reports say Andrew Anthony Maylor, who was deported in 2008, has also been sentenced to an additional 37 months for violation of his prior term of supervised release.
According to the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency, Maylor was first convicted in 1993 for federal drug conspiracy charges.
US Attorney for the Western District of Virginia Timothy J. Heaphy said Maylor committed another crime when he re-entered the United States without authorization.
He says the authorities will do all they can to enforce federal immigration laws, which help keep criminals like Maylor out of the US.
