DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – An illegal immigrant was sentenced to seven years in prison for entering the United States illegally a second time.

Fausto Ozuna-Cruz, 27, was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court. Court documents indicate federal agents found Cruz booked into the Montgomery County Jail back in August on charges stemming from a fight.

Cruz is a sex offender, convicted of having sex with a minor in Clinton County in July 2008. He was deported after release in 2009 to his home country of Mexico.

Federal authorities say he almost immediately made illegal re-entry into the U.S.
