CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A man living in Mount Vernon is headed to federal prison for reentering the country illegally.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Iowa says 33-year-old Jose Alejandro Vasquez-Pacheco was deported to Mexico in 2009 after being convicted of operating while intoxicated three times between 2003 and 2007.

They say Vasquez-Pacheco came back to the U.S. illegally in 2010 and was arrested by immigration officers in Mount Vernon on March 17 of this year.

Vasquez-Pacheco pleaded guilty to one count of illegally reentering the United States after having been deported following a felony conviction on April 23, 2015. He was sentenced to sixteen months in prison.
