St.Kitts Man Sentenced to 4 Years In Prison for Illegal Entry into the US


A US federal grand jury on St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands has returned a four-count indictment charging Terrance L. Hanley, 44, also known as Robert A. Jenkins, with illegal reentry into the United States, identity theft, making false statements, and making false claims to citizenship, United States Attorney Ronald W. Sharpe announced in December .
According to the indictment Hanley presented a false Florida driver’s license to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers on November 16, 2014 at the Cyril E. King Airport on St. Thomas bearing the name Robert A. Jenkins, and told agents that he was a citizen of the United States. Further inquiries at the secondary inspection checkpoint determined that the defendant’s true name is Terrance L. Hanley, and that he is a convicted felon and national of St. Kitts and Nevis, who was deported from the United States to St.Kitts on June 18, 2014
The case was investigated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Investigations and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Everard E. Potter. Investigators found that Hanley was arrested in December 2003 and charged with conspiracy to import heroin and cocaine.
Hanley pleaded guilty on Jan. 15 to illegal re-entry into the United States. District Court Judge Curtis V. Gomez on Thursday sentenced him to 44 months in prison and three years of supervised release for illegal reentry into the United States.
