WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Mexican man who's been convicted twice of
transporting illegal immigrants has been sentenced in Kansas to 46
months in federal prison.
The U.S. Attorney's office says 32-year-old Jose Alberto
Orozco-Larios received the sentence Monday in federal court in
Wichita. He pleaded guilty earlier to one count each of
transporting illegal immigrants and aggravated re-entry after
Orozco-Larios was pulled over in Seward County in March of this
year while driving a van carrying eight illegal immigrants - four
of them young girls unaccompanied by parents.
Orozco-Larios had been deported to Mexico in December 2006.
Nineteen months later he was convicted in Pennsylvania on the same
counts as the Kansas charges and was deported a second time after
serving a prison sentence.
