Feds motion to dismiss charges against alleged immigrant smugglers – California News

SAN DIEGO — The U.S. Attorney’s Office has filed a motion to dismiss a criminal complaint against two Valley residents who were recently arrested for their alleged roles in immigrant smuggling and conspiracy to commit immigrant smuggling.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of California filed a motion Monday seeking to dismiss the immigrant smuggling conspiracy charges against a 32-year-old man and a 37-year-old woman, both of Heber, according to federal court records.

On Tuesday, a second motion was filed seeking to recall an arrest warrant issued for one of the defendants, Sergio Acosta, as well as seeking the release of three material witnesses from federal custody.

Both motions requested the complaint be dismissed without prejudice. The U.S. Attorney’s Office declined a request to comment about its decision to dismiss the charges.
