Plankinton man convicted of assault, charged with illegally reentering U.S.
PLANKINTON -- A Plankinton man has been sentenced to time served for a June assault.
Raymundo Lopez-Lopez, 40, pleaded guilty to simple assault on July 31 and now faces federal charges of illegally reentering the country after being deported in 2009.
A deputy from the Aurora County Sheriff's Office responded to Lopez-Lopez's East Madison Street apartment on the morning of June 18 to perform a welfare check. According to court documents, two boys, ages 4 and 5, were found at the apartment without Lopez-Lopez.
A woman then came to the apartment and said Lopez-Lopez had assaulted her the night before, choking her until she lost consciousness at one point. She said Lopez-Lopez had taken a child from her apartment while she was unconscious.
Lopez-Lopez was charged with aggravated assault, simple assault and taking a minor child from his custodial parent. The remainder of the charges were dismissed when Lopez-Lopez pleaded guilty to simple assault.
Lopez-Lopez was sentenced to the 14 days he served between his arrest and his sentencing. He was ordered to pay $86.50 in court costs and a $25 DUI surcharge.
On Aug. 6, Lopez-Lopez was charged with illegally reentering the country after deportation. He was arrested on Monday.
