September 11, 2018

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A grand jury has indicted five men who federal prosecutors say unlawfully entered the U.S. after being deported.

U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister says all five men were found in various counties in Kansas and face federal prison sentences.

The indictment says 27-year-old Jose Rafael Gutierrez-Yanez has been deported four times. He was found in March in Sumner County. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in federal prison.

The other four men, two from Mexico and two whose nationalities were not given, face two years in prison if convicted. They had been deported between once and three times.

They were found in Johnson, Pratt and Ellis counties.
