By BBN Staff: Belizean national and convicted felon, Santos Moreira is expected to be sentenced by a United States district judge to 18 months behind bars followed by three years of supervised release, according to his plea deal filed in a Los Angeles Federal Court.
Moreira made it to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) list of most-wanted deportable aliens.
He is facing a federal charge of illegal re-entry into the United States after being deported three times.
In 2015, Moreira was found in Los Angeles County.
Moreira was previously deported from the United States on three separate occasions — in December 1995, September 1999 and October 2010, the indictment states.
He is charged with re-entering and remaining in the U.S. knowingly and voluntarily without having obtained permission to reapply for admission into the U.S. following deportation.
In 1991, Moreira was convicted in the Los Angeles County superior court for possession for sale of cocaine base.
In 1992, Moreira was convicted in a Superior Court of second-degree robbery with an enhancement for personally using a firearm.
He was sentenced to five years in state prison for that offense, the indictment states.
He was convicted of manslaughter in Arizona in 2004, prosecutors said.
He was also in a Texas State Prison for a 2018 drug-related conviction.
Moreira is likely to be deported immediately following prison.
