Winston-Salem Man Sentenced to 25 Years for Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine

Greensboro, NC - Jose Mondujano-Hernandez, 25, was sentenced on April 27, 2022, to a total of 300 months in prison for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. Sandra J. Hairston, United States Attorney for the Middle District of North Carolina, made the announcement.

According to court documents, in September 2020, an undercover officer (UC) was introduced to an unknown person located in Mexico who began negotiating a sale of crystal methamphetamine. On September 28, 2020, the UC was contacted by another unknown individual to coordinate the drug transaction in Winston-Salem. Agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Greensboro conducted surveillance on the meeting location where the transaction occurred and was video recorded. Mondujano-Hernandez sold the UC one kilogram of suspected methamphetamine, and a laboratory test confirmed the substance to be methamphetamine. On October 13, 2020, and November 5, 2020, the UC made additional controlled drug purchases from Mondujano-Hernandez for three kilograms of methamphetamine. In the following weeks, the UC was involved in further transactions involving Mondujano-Hernandez and his co-defendants for additional purchases that totaled approximately 16 kilograms of methamphetamine. Mondujano-Hernandez and four other co-defendants were charged by Superseding Indictment with conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine in February 2021.

The Honorable Thomas D. Schroeder sentenced Mondujano-Hernandez to 300 months imprisonment. After imprisonment, Mondujano-Hernandez will be subject to supervised release for ten years.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant U. S. Attorney Terry M. Meinecke. The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Administration were involved in the investigation of the case and were assisted by several local and state agencies.
