NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A man who lived in Chesapeake has pleaded guilty to illegally reentering the country after having been previously removed.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said 42-year-old Cesar Fernando Valenzuela-Alvarez, who most recently lived in Chesapeake, had illegally entered the country after having been deported to Mexico multiple times.

Valenzuela-Alvarez was taken into custody in Chesapeake after authorities learned he was the subject of an Interpol “red notice” — which is close to an international arrest warrant.

He could get up to two years in prison when he is sentenced April 3, 2019.
