Federal judges recently sentenced five Mexican nationals for illegal alien crimes, and two people for methamphetamine, according to a news release from the Wyoming U.S. Attorney General's Office.

 

Jose Pena-Garcia, 27, Julia Cesar Munoz-Hernandez, 30, Daniel Serrano-Alvarado, 41, Jose Yanez-Salinas, 27, and Jose Luis Cruz-Ramos, 40, were all sentenced for illegal re-entry of a previously deported alien.

Pena-Garcia and Munoz-Hernandez were arrested in Gillette. Serrano-Alvarado was arrested in Casper. Yanez-Salinas and Cruz-Ramos were arrested in Jackson.

All were sentenced to time served, plus 10 days. They were ordered to pay $100 special assessments and are subject to deportation upon release from custody.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security investigated these cases.

In two separate drug cases, U.S. District Judge Scott Skavdahl sentenced  Raymond Austin Roberts, 39, of Casper for possession with intent to distribute a mixture of substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine. Roberts received 10 years, 10 months imprisonment, to be followed by three years of probation. Skavdahl also ordered him to pay a $500 fine and a $100 special assessment. This case was investigated by the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation.

Skavdahl also sentenced Jayde Mucklow, 29, of Englewood, Colo., for possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine, and aiding and abetting. Mucklow was arrested in Denver. She received five years, six months imprisonment, to be followed by four years of probation. Skavdahl also ordered her to pay a $250 fine and a $100 special assessment.

This case results from an ongoing Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces joint investigation conducted by the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. The program identifies, disrupts and dismantles the most serious drug trafficking, weapons trafficking and money laundering organizations, and those primarily responsible for the nation’s illegal drug supply.
