Littlefield man sentenced for role in meth distribution

Arnoldo Mendoza Lepez, 45, of Littlefield, was sentenced Friday morning, Oct. 13th, before Senior U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings to 405 months in federal prison, following his guilty plea to his role in a methamphetamine distribution conspiracy.

The announcement was made by U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas. A co-defendant, Joseph Raymond Jaramillo, Jr., 30, also of Littlefield, was sentenced last week to 365 months in federal prison following his guilty plea to his role in the same conspiracy.

Both Lepez and Jaramillo pleaded guilty in July 2017 to one count of possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of methamphetamine. Both have been in custody since the time of their arrest in May 2017.
