SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Christian Henry Dorsch Jr., 50, of Vacaville, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Troy L. Nunley to seven years in prison for possessing methamphetamine for distribution, U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott announced.

Dorsch pleaded guilty on January 10, 2019. According to court documents, on September 6, 2018, police stopped Dorsch while he was driving in Fairfield. A search warrant allowed them to search Dorsch, his cars, and his home in Vacaville for evidence of drug-trafficking and firearms. When the officers searched Dorsch’s car, they found approximately one-half pound of methamphetamine in the center console. Later, during an interview, Dorsch said that he intended to sell the narcotics.

This case was the product of an investigation by the Vacaville Police Department, with special assistance from the FBI’s Solano County Violent Crimes Task Force and the Solano County District Attorney’s Office.
