Sentence for Meth Trafficker


A Colorado man who pleaded guilty to shipping almost $350,000 worth of methamphetamine to Fairbanks has been sentenced to 15 ½ years in federal prison.

According to AP, 40–year–old Mario Gutierrez sent meth from the Denver area to a co–conspirator in Fairbanks during 2009 and 2010.

The money was deposited in a bank account Gutierrez maintained in Alaska.

Gutierrez was sentenced Friday.

He previously pleaded guilty to one count of drug conspiracy and one count of money laundering.
