Former ICE agent sentenced for impersonating officer in Kansas

February 25, 2020 - 8:13 pm

Authorities say a former agent with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement was sentenced Tuesday to nine months in prison for impersonating an immigration supervisor in a foiled effort to free a Mexican immigrant from a Kansas jail. 

The U.S. attorney's office says Andrew J. Peviak, 42, of Topeka pleaded guilty in December to falsely claiming to be an officer of ICE's Enforcement and Removal Operations. 

Pleviak identified himself as another man who is an actual ICE agent in an effort in September to get an acquaintance out of the Kingman County jail.
