Mountain Home man gets under two years in prison for selling pound of meth to police

June 5, 2013 

A Mountain Home man convicted of selling a pound of methamphetamine to an undercover officer in 2011 was sentenced to just less than two years in prison in federal court Tuesday.

Raul Garcia-Rosales, 39, admitted to receiving the meth from codefendant Jamie Guerrero, then selling it at a truck stop in Mountain Home as part of a plea agreement. Garcia-Rosales pleaded guilty to possession with the intent to distribute in November.

Guerrero, 27, pleaded guilty at the same time. The Glenns Ferry man is scheduled to be sentenced in August 26 at the federal courthouse.

In addition to his 21-month stint in prison, a judge also ordered Garcia Rosales to spend three years under supervised release.
