Denver –

Deported from the United States, Ismael Gonzalez-Arenas, reentered the country and has been sentenced to life in federal prison.


Gonzalez-Arenas was sentenced life plus 60 months by Judge Robert E. Blackburn.


Found guilty in September of charges which include: unlawful transport of firearms, manufacturing controlled substance, drugs/violent crime/machine gun, and reentry of deported aliens.


The case was investigated by Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Special Agent Carrie DiPirro.  The case has been ended.

As a former Assistant U.S Attorney, I have had experience in many cases like these. These are very serious charges and if you are accused of a federal crime, you will need a very good attorney experienced in federal criminal charges. As an Assistant District Attorney, I tried over 70 criminal jury trials, ranging from murder, armed robbery, sexual assaults of adults and children and kidnapping, to DUI, assault and simple drug possession.
