A man from Guatemala who was living in Sioux City when he was picked up for drunk driving will spend 18 months in a federal prison. It was the third time the man had been convicted of drunken driving. Twenty-nine-year-old Juan Pichilla-Marroquin had been deported in December of 2008 after his third drunken driving conviction.
In February of this year he pleaded guilty to one-count of illegally re-entering the country as a felon. He’s been sentenced to one-and-a-half years in a federal prison. There is no parole in the federal system.
