PHOENIX — Two Phoenix brothers have been given long federal prison sentences after pleading guilty to possession of methamphetamine for distribution.
Prosecutors said Monday that 49-year-old Franicsco Gomez-Cazares was sentenced to 210 months in prison and 35-year-old Victor Gomez-Cazares got a 188-month term.
The brothers pleaded guilty last May to possession of more than 50 grams of methamphetamine with intent to sell.
They were accused of being involved in a trafficking organization that stretched from Mexico through Arizona and on into the rest of the United States.
The brothers were also accused of using a Phoenix house as a stop for trafficking drugs.
A U.S. District Court judge in Phoenix last week also ordered the Gomez-Cazares brothers to forfeit a Phoenix home and nearly $794,000 in cash plus a gun and ammunition.
