On Tuesday, a guy was convicted for cocaine trafficking in Washington, among other things.
Alan Gomez-Marentes, 38, will spend the next 11 years in prison for drug distribution and money laundering conspiracies.
He was convicted in 2005 of supplying cocaine at Washington State University, which resulted in five years in prison and deportation to Mexico.
Gomez-Marentes was also convicted of cocaine trafficking in Mexico and sentenced to five years in jail there.
He was caught for his most recent offense in July 2020, following an 18-month investigation into a large drug trafficking network.
According to US District Judge John C. Coughenour, the harsher sentence for the second US violation reflects the extent of the drug trafficking network and the amount of fentanyl introduced into the community.
The inquiry determined that Gomez-Marentes was in a position of leadership, and his sentence is the final one for all those convicted of involvement in the organization and related offenses.
