     The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, announced that a 24-year-old Reading man was sentenced today by Senior U.S. District Court Judge A. Richard Caputo to serve seven years in prison for participating in a drug trafficking conspiracy.

     According to United States Attorney Peter J. Smith, Isaac Villasenor previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute more than 500 grams of cocaine and more than 500 grams of methamphetamine. The drug conspiracy operated in the Schuylkill and Berks County area between August and November of 2011.
