(BOISE, Idaho) -- A Mexican national was sentenced to 15 years in prison on Monday for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
According to the United States Attorney's Office in the District of Idaho, Hernan Gomez-Gutierrez, 31, pleaded guilty to the charge in January.
Additionally, Gomez-Gutierrez was present when one of his co-defendants shot a man in March 2013, "in furtherance of the drug conspiracy, because of a dispute with that person about the quality of the methamphetamine."
Gomez-Gutierrez, along with 10 other individuals, was charged in the conspiracy, indicted in July 2013, and all 11 pleaded guilty. He is believed to have been the leader of the organization and the source of the drugs. The 11 defendants have been sentenced, receiving between 33 and 247 months in jail.
