NORFOLK — An El Salvadoran national pleaded guilty in a federal courtroom here Thursday to illegal reentry following a felony conviction for aggravated sexual battery of a child younger than 13 years old.
According to court documents, Ubaldo Adonay Moran-Arevalo, 37, was found to be in the United States illegally in 2004 and ordered removed in 2005.
He remained in the country and was arrested in 2008 in Virginia Beach for sexually assaulting a child, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia.
After being convicted and sentenced, he was removed from the United States, but returned sometime later. Moran-Arevalo came to ICE’s attention several months ago after he was arrested in Virginia Beach for drunken driving. He has since been convicted of that charge, prosecutors said.
Moran-Arevalo faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug 20.
