HARRISBURG, Saturday, April 23, 2011 -- Carlos Zamorano-Zamorano, a 25-year-old citizen of Mexico, has been charged with illegally re-entering the United States after being arrested recently in Franklin County.

Peter J. Smith, U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, announced the charges on Friday. A federal grand jury in Harrisburg charged Zamorano on Wednesday in a one-count indictment.

Zamorano had been convicted previously of a felony and deported from the U.S. in April 2009, according to Smith. If convicted Zamorano faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement conducted the investigation. Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian G. McDonnell is the prosecutor.
