ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - A Central African Republic citizen has been found guilty in federal court in Alexandria on two counts of impeding or hampering his deportation from the United States.
U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley tells The Town Talk 46-year-old Seyba Diallo faces four years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and one year of supervised release for each count. Sentencing has been set for June 10.
Finley says the evidence established that on Nov. 11, 2011, and March 13, 2012, Diallo physically resisted U.S. Immigration Enforcement agents when they attempted to put him on a plane in Rapides Parish to return him to Africa.
She says Diallo has been in the U.S. for more than nine years.
