Cristobal Marin-Lopez, 22, of Mexico, pled guilty to illegally re-entering the United States after having previously been deported and convicted of a felony, announced U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst.

On December 22, 2017, Marin-Lopez was involved in a single-vehicle accident in Simpson County on Highway 43 and Tom Coke Road. Marin-Lopez was driving a Silver Chevy Trailblazer when he lost control and wrecked. Eyewitnesses to the wreck stated that several individuals ran into the woods after the wreck. None of the individuals were located.

U.S. Attorney Hurst said that Marin-Lopez was previously convicted for possession of heroin in Harris County, Texas, which is a felony, on November 4, 2014. He was then removed from the United States on November 1, 2016.

Marin-Lopez will be sentenced on May 31, 2018, at 9:30 a.m. by Judge Lee, and faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
