Guam - Three individuals were sentenced in District Court this week.

A press release states 42-year-old Miguel Camacho was given a little over 5 years, followed by 3 years of supervised release and 100 hours of community service for using FedEx to distribute almost 1 kilogram of ice from the Philippines to Guam in 2015.

Another man sentenced for ice trafficking is 42-year-old Jerry Francisco, who was given 6 months’ jail time followed by 6 months’ home detention, 2 years of supervised release, and 50 hours of community service for using the U.S. Postal Service to bring in nearly 7 grams of ice into Guam in July of 2012.

Third to be sentenced in Federal Court this week is 46-year-old Joseph Anthony Jones, who pleaded guilty to a charge of Felon in Possession of a Firearm. Jones was given 8 months in prison plus 3 years of supervised release and 50 hours of community service. He had previously been convicted of 2 felony drug charges in Superior Court.

Acting U.S. Attorney Shawn Anderson, in a release, stated, “Armed felons and unlawful drug users pose a grave danger to our communities. The Department of Justice will continue to focus resources on these prosecutions in an effort to prevent violent crime.”
