Convicted Child Sexual Abuser Sentenced for Illegally Reentry

An illegal alien who has a previous conviction for aggravated sexual battery of a child, was sentenced today to 16 months in prison for illegally reentering the United States.

According to court documents, Eliseo Garcia-Gordillo, 38, a citizen of Honduras, entered the United States three times between 1999 and 2007, and was twice removed from the United States during that time. Sometime after his most recent removal in 2007, Garcia-Gordillo again reentered the United States without permission, and was found in February 2017 when he was arrested in Prince William County. In June 2019, Garcia-Gordillo was convicted of aggravated sexual battery of a child under the age of 13.

“Eliseo Garcia-Gordillo has illegally entered the United States on four occasions, and has recently been convicted of sexually abusing an innocent child,” said G. Zachary Terwilliger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. “Individuals like Garcia-Gordillo, who are here illegally and committing serious crimes, represent a clear threat to the safety and security of our communities. This case is representative of precisely why we have committed to prioritizing criminal immigration enforcement cases across the Eastern District of Virginia.”
