Albuquerque Man Sentenced for Federal Methamphetamine Trafficking Conviction

ALBUQUERQUE – Jimmy Marquez, 38, of Albuquerque, N.M., was sentenced today in federal court to 60 months in prison followed by four years of supervised release for his methamphetamine trafficking conviction.

Marquez was arrested on June 30, 2015, on an indictment charging him with distributing methamphetamine on April 17, 2015 and May 29, 2015, in Bernalillo County, N.M.  The indictment included forfeiture allegations requiring Marquez to forfeit $600 and a motorcycle to the United States.

On Oct. 23, 2015, Marquez pled guilty to one count of distribution of methamphetamine and admitted that on April 17, 2015, he sold 13.6 grams of 98.4% pure methamphetamine to an undercover law enforcement officer.

This case was investigated by the Albuquerque office of the DEA and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer M. Rozzoni.
