Roswell Man Sentenced to 60 Months for Federal Methamphetamine Trafficking Conviction

ALBUQUERQUE – Dominic A. Sedillo, 24, of Roswell, N.M., was sentenced this morning in federal court in Las Cruces, N.M., to 60 months in prison for his methamphetamine trafficking conviction.  He will be on supervised release for four years after completing his prison sentence.

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.

On Feb. 27, 2015, Sedillo pled guilty to both counts of the indictment without the benefit of a plea agreement.  In entering his guilty plea, Sedillo admitted selling 24 grams of methamphetamine in exchange for $1,200.00 in April 2013, and selling 58.8 grams of methamphetamine in change for $3,000.00 in June 2013.  Both transactions occurred in Artesia, N.M.

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