LAS CRUCES, N.M. — A New Mexico woman was sentenced Friday to 33 months in federal prison for methamphetamine trafficking.
Special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) investigated this case.
Erika Jimenez, 31, from Deming, New Mexico, must also serve three years of supervised release after she completes her prison sentence.
Jimenez was arrested July 17, 2016, on an indictment charging her with distributing methamphetamine July 22, 2015, and Nov. 9, 2015, in Luna County, New Mexico. The indictment included forfeiture provisions requiring Jimenez to forfeit $1,750 to the United States.
On Oct. 15, 2016, Jimenez pleaded guilty to distributing methamphetamine, and admitted that on July 22, 2015, she distributed about 29 grams of methamphetamine to an individual working with law enforcement.
Assistant U.S. Attorneys Mark A. Saltman and Dustin C. Segovia, District of New Mexico, prosecuted this case.
