Comments Off on 6 sentenced in southern Idaho drug trafficking case

BOISE, Idaho — Six people convicted for their roles in a southwestern Idaho drug ring have been sentenced for trafficking methamphetamine.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Boise says 24-year-old Jason Marr, of Weiser, was sentenced to almost 11 years in prison and 43-year-old Heidi Tucker, of Star, received a one-year sentence at a hearing earlier this week.

Four Mexican nationals were also sentenced in the case, including 37-year-old Jose Gallardo-Dedios, 45-year-old Guadalupe Valenzuela, 35-year-old Angel Dedios and 63-year-old Juan Arvizu-Betancourt. They will serve between 18 months and up to 15 years in prison.

The six pleaded guilty in guilty in January to charges of conspiracy or intent to distribute meth.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Idaho says the group distributed more than 100 pounds of meth from May 2009 to June 2010.–Drug-Ring-Sentencing/
