Methamphetamine Dealer Sentenced To 168 Months In Prison

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 20, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO – Rogelio Corral and Jose Efrain-Gonzalez were sentenced on May 16, 2013, to 14 years and 5 years, respectively, in prison for drug trafficking, United States Attorney Melinda Haag announced.

Corral and Efrain-Gonzalez pleaded guilty on February 21 and 28, 2013, respectively, to violations of 21 U.S.C. section 841(a)(1) and (b)(1)(A)(viii), pursuant to plea agreements with the government. According to the plea agreements, Corral admitted that he supplied two pounds of methamphetamine for a drug deal in Redwood City on July 16, 2012 and Efrain-Gonzalez admitted that he participated in that deal. That deal was the culmination of a six-month sting operation conducted by the San Mateo County Narcotics Task Force in conjunction with the United States Drug Enforcement Administration.

Corral, 33, of Fremont, California, and Efrain-Gonzalez, 35, of Redwood City, California, were indicted by a federal grand jury on July 19, 2012. Both were charged with two counts of possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, arising out of their participation in two drug deals – one on July 16, 2012 and one on May 31, 2012 – with an undercover police officer posing as a fellow drug dealer looking to purchase drugs.

The sentences were handed down by U.S. District Court Judge Jeffery S. White, and also include a five year period of supervised release. Both defendants were remanded to the Bureau of Prisons to begin serving their respective sentences immediately.
