LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) A federal grand jury in Kansas City, Kan., has indicted a 29-year-old Mexican national accusing him of illegally re-entering the U.S. after serving a prison term for a fatal drunken-driving crash.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports federal prosecutors allege that Adan Cruz-Santos returned to Douglas County illegally after he was deported in 2010 once he was paroled.
He was sentenced in 2005 to five and a half years in prison after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter and DUI in the death of a 25-year-old nurse from Olathe.
He was paroled in 2010 and deported to Mexico because of his felony conviction.
Online court records did not list a lawyer for Cruz-Santos.
