Man Deported As Miguel Plead Guilty to Re-entry As Wendy, Now Fast Track Removal

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 1 – Miguel Urena-Mercedes was charged with illegal re-entry of the United States after conviction for a felony. 

  On June 1, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Richard M. Berman held a change of plea proceeding.  Inner City Press covered it.    

Initially, Judge Berman established that Mercedes has agreed to Fast Track deportation or removal. He has. Still, his lawyer said 90 days for a pre-sentencing report would be OK.

Mercedes was sworn in and answered a series of questions.

To the first one, he said his name was Wendy Minaya Acosta.   

AUSA Andrew Jones explained that he was deported under the name Miguel Urena-Mercedes "but he uses another name in the documents in the D.R.."

His guilty plea was accepted; his sentencing is scheduled for September 15 at noon.

The case is still called or styled US v. Urena-Mercedes, 10-cr-1053 (Berman)
