SIOUX FALLS, SD -
A South Dakota man has pleaded guilty to illegally re-entering the United States after being deported to Mexico.
U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says 26-year-old Ramiro Martinez-Rivas, of Rapid City, pleaded guilty to the charge in U.S. District Court last week.
Prosecutors say Martinez-Rivas was found in Rapid City in September after authorities previously deported him to Mexico.
Martinez-Rivas faces two years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he is sentenced Nov. 29.
The Rapid City Police Department and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement investigated the case.
