 The Court ordered Bautista Chala’s sentence to be served consecutive to a sentence imposed by the Suffolk Superior Court in September 2019.  Following the completion of his prison term, Bautista Chala will be placed into removal proceedings and deported to the Dominican Republic.

In 2017, Bautista Chala was arrested by the Boston Police during the execution of a search warrant and charged with distribution of heroin.  At that time, Bautista Chala was determined to be illegally present in the United States and on Aug. 7, 2017, he was deported to the Dominican Republic.  Sometime after his removal, Bautista Chala, using the alias Luis Figueroa-Cabrera, illegally reentered the United States and was rearrested, and later convicted of distribution of heroin in the Suffolk County Superior Court and sentenced to two years’ imprisonment.  In October 2019, while serving this sentence, Bautista Chala, was encountered by ICE agents and again determined to be illegally present in the United States.

United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling and Michael Shea, Acting Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations in Boston, made the announcement today.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Kenneth G. Shine of Lelling’s Major Crimes Unit prosecuted the case.
