For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska
United States Attorney Steven A. Russell announced that Juan Diaz-Diaz, 27 of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced on February 3, 2023, in federal court in Omaha for distribution of methamphetamine. Chief United States District Court Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. sentenced Diaz-Diaz to 87 months’ imprisonment. After completing his term of imprisonment, Diaz-Diaz will be required to serve a 3-year term of supervised release as there is no parole in the federal system.
On three separate occasions in 2020, Omaha police narcotics officers utilized a confidential informant (CI) to purchase methamphetamine from Diaz-Diaz at different Omaha locations. The CI was able to purchase a total of more than a half-pound of methamphetamine during the three transactions.
This case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department.
