Roswell Man Pleads Guilty to Federal Methamphetamine Trafficking Charges

ALBUQUERQUE – Dominic A. Sedillo, 23, of Roswell, N.M., pleaded guilty this afternoon in federal court in Las Cruces, N.M., to methamphetamine trafficking charges.

 Sedillo was arrested on Jan. 24, 2014, in Roswell on a two-count indictment charging him with distributing methamphetamine in Eddy County, N.M., on April 25, 2013 and June 5, 2013.

During today’s proceedings, Sedillo pled guilty to both counts of the indictment.  In entering his guilty plea, Sedillo admitted selling 24 grams of methamphetamine in exchange for $1,200.00 in April, and selling 58.8 grams of methamphetamine in change for $3,000.00 in June 2013.  Both transactions occurred in Artesia, N.M.

Sedillo remains in federal custody pending his sentencing hearing, which has yet to be scheduled.  At sentencing Sedillo faces a prison sentence of not less than five years and not more than 40 years followed by at least four years of supervised release.

This case was investigated by the Las Cruces office of the DEA and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Randy M. Castellano of the U.S. Attorney’s Las Cruces Branch Office.
