    He got off easy. Generally you do your time, then get deported subsequently. Of course his offense was minor, so I guess he did do his time.

    He'll have to pay $6K to reënter, more if he wants to come through the gate instead of the mountains. And he'll do an automatic 4 years federal if he has any future LE contact.
