An illegal alien who bit a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officer has been sentenced to 12 months in jail.
Honduran national Orvin Omar Reyes-Martinez, 31, bit an ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officer while resisting arrest, ICE reported Tuesday:
“Reyes-Martinez fled as ERO officers identified themselves and attempted to arrest him. Following his apprehension, a struggle ensued and Reyes-Martinez bit an officer, drawing blood from the puncture wound.”
Reyes-Martinez had previously been deported and assaulted a law enforcement officer in 2016, ICE reported Wednesday:
“A Honduran national and repeated illegal re-entrant was sentenced on May 3 to 12 months and one day after pleading guilty to one count of illegal re-entry and one count of assault on a law enforcement officer in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Virginia. A judge immediately sentenced Reyes-Martinez, taking into account his multiple illegal re-entries, his multiple instances of assaulting law enforcement, and the gravity of the injury to the officer in the course of his most recent arrest.
“Orvin Omar Reyes-Martinez, 31, was most recently removed to Honduras on Dec. 16, 2016, and subsequently illegally re-entered the U.S. sometime thereafter. On Feb. 20, officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) encountered Reyes-Martinez when he was scheduled to appear at Fairfax County General District Court on local charges, to include a previous assault on a law enforcement officer.”
