Illegal Alien Pleads Guilty To Multiple Counts In Monroe Court

Eliezer Merino-Tetlactle, 25, of Mexico, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty to one count of re-entry of a removed alien. 

According to the guilty plea, West Monroe police arrested Merino-Tetlactle on August 23, 2018 for carnal knowledge of a juvenile, computer aided solicitation of a minor, possession of marijuana and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile. His background check showed that he was an illegal alien who had been previously removed from the United States twice.

Merino-Tetlactle faces two years in prison, one year of supervised release and a $250,000. United States Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations and the West Monroe Police Department investigated the case.
