Dominican sentenced in U.S. after 3rd illegal entry
PROVIDENCE, R.I.—A citizen of the Dominican Republic who's been deported from Rhode Island twice has been sentenced to 5 1/2 years in prison after entering the country illegally a third time.


The U.S. Attorney's office in Rhode Island said Friday that Reynaldo Hilario Polanco was sentenced after he completed a separate sentence for larceny. Polanco was arrested on that charge in March 2008.

Polanco was first deported to his home country in 2001 after being convicted on drug charges in Rhode Island. The following year, he was again arrested in the state on a drug charge and sentenced to almost five years in prison. He was deported after serving part of that sentence.

An attorney for the 32-year-old Polanco didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.
