Terry Lee O’Brien, 53, of Boise, was sentenced Tuesday in United States District Court to 5 1/2 years in prison followed by three years of supervised release for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced.

According to court documents, O’Brien admitted that he conspired with his two co-defendants, Christopher Palacios, a/k/a “Paco,” 40, of Filer, and Krystal Amber Reese, 31, of Filer, to distribute meth in the Twin Falls area. O’Brien pleaded guilty this past April to count one of the indictment charging him and the co-defendants with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in Idaho.

Palacios pleaded guilty in February to one count of the indictment. He faces at least 10 years in prison, up to a $10 million fine and at least five years of supervised release. Sentencing is set for Aug. 13.

Reese pleaded guilty Tuesday count 10 of the indictment charging her with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. She faces at least five years in prison, a fine of up to $5 million and at least four years of supervised release. Sentencing is set for Sept. 23.

The case was investigated by the Idaho State Police.
