LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a Mexican national has pleaded guilty in federal district court in Lafayette to illegally re-entering the U.S. twice.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley’s Office announced in a news release Wednesday 41-year-old Mario Albert Mora-Villa will be sentenced Oct. 11 on a conviction of one count of illegal re-entry of a removed alien.

While jailed in St. Mary Parish, a news release says Mora-Villa admitted to immigration officers he had been removed from the U.S. in March 2007 and November 2011 and had re-entered without permission.

He faces two years in prison, one year of supervised probation and a $250,000 fine.
