TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - An illegal immigrant, previously convicted of felony arson, has been sentenced to 51 months in federal prison after he was caught trying to sneak back into the United States.
Officials with the U.S. Attorney's Office say that 29 year-old Eduardo Preciado-Garcia was apprehended by agents on July 7th 2011. In 2001 he was convicted in Pima County for a felony charge of arson and after serving 2 1/2 years in prison he was deported.
Once Preciado-Garcia serves his 515 months in prison he will again be deported back to Mexico.
