February 4, 2019

SCRANTON — A 47-year-old man previously deported to Mexico six times was caught again in Lackawanna County, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania said Monday. Juan Conrado Gonzalez-Martinez illegally reentered the United States sometime after his most recent deportation in August 2012, prosecutors said. He was found in August in the county, according to an indictment. A federal grand jury handed up the indictment Jan. 16. Prosecutors announced it Monday along with 15 similar indictments through the district. Gonzalez-Martinez pleaded not guilty. U.S. Magistrate Judge Karoline Mehalchick ordered him detained at the Lackawanna County Prison. — JOSEPH KOHUT
