HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Federal prosecutors say a Mexican citizen who most recently lived in Norwalk has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for illegally re-entering the United States after being deported.
Marcos Martinez-Gutierrez was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Hartford.

The 43-year-old Martinez-Gutierrez has never held legal status in the U.S. and had been sent back to Mexico from the U.S. three times.

Authorities say that while in the U.S. unlawfully since at least 1990 Martinez-Gutierrez was convicted four times for driving while intoxicated, three times for possession of narcotics, twice for assault and once for patronizing a prostitute.

He was sentenced in state court last year to three years in jail for possession of narcotics and criminal impersonation.

Last April he pleaded guilty in federal court to illegal reentry of a removed alien.
