The detention hearing for a Guatemalan farm worker who is accused of being in the U.S. illegally was canceled on Thursday.

Officials for the U.S. District Court in Syracuse say the hearing was canceled because Marcial DeLeon-Aguilar was indicted Wednesday on a charge of illegal re-entry into the U.S.  An arraignment date has not yet been set.

DeLeon-Aguilar was detained on April 18 when U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raided John Collins’ farm in Rome, where DeLeon-Aguilar was working and living with his pregnant wife and four children.

Officials say DeLeon-Aguilar has been deported three times since 1997: one time after an aggravated assault conviction, and two times after his illegal re-entry into the U.S.
