A Mexico man was sentenced in federal court Thursday to four years in prison for illegally re-entering the country.
Antonio Martinez-Angiano, 43, was also ordered to have three years of supervised release after his four-year prison sentence is served. He was officially charged with illegal re-entry of a previously removed alien.
Martinez-Angiano was arrested in Tahlequah on Feb. 29, 2012, by the Tulsa Fugitive Operations Team, and was indicted the following month. In April 2012, he pleaded guilty.
Prosecutors allege Martinez-Angiano was removed from the U.S. in April 2000 near Laredo, Texas, and voluntarily re-entered the country without permission.
He remains in custody of the U.S. Marshal Service pending transportation to a federal prison.
