A man who was illegally in this country and arrested in Cody was sentenced to prison and deportation last week.
40 year old Julio Garay-Gutierrez of Mexico, was sentenced by Federal District Court Judge Scott Skavdahl on November 30, for being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm. Garay-Gutierrez was arrested at his residence south of Cody.
According to an article in the Powell Tribune, Garay-Gutierrez first came to the attention of law enforcement after being arrested for driving while under the influence, with blood alcohol levels over 3 times the legal limit. After his arrest, immigration officials determined that he had entered the country illegally in 2001.
Court documents report that a search warrant for Garay-Gutierrez’ residence turned up two pistols and a rifle, and Garay was arrested for being an illegal alien in possession of firearms. At his court appearance, he received 24 months in prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release, and was ordered to pay a $100.00 special assessment. Additionally, Garay-Gutierrez is subject to deportation upon release from custody.
