Two men found guilty of dealing drugs in the Spencer area will spend a combined 24 years in a federal prison.
In January, 28-year-old Orlando Escobar-Quintanilla of Spencer pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and a variety of related crimes. He’s been sentenced to 14 years in prison.
Another Spencer man, 30-year-old Elio Torres-Marin, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison. He pleaded guilty to one count of distribution of methamphetamine and one count of using a minor to distribute the drug.
Authorities say the two men distributed over two pounds of meth in the Spencer area over a 16-month period. According to the U.S. Attorney, the meth came from Texas.
The men will serve their full prison terms, as there’s no parole in the federal prison system.
