Robert Eoff, 31, of Boise was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Court Judge Edward J. Lodge to two years plus two months in federal prison for conspiring to launder money, Idaho U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced.
Lodge also ordered Eoff to serve three years of supervised release, and complete 80 hours of community service. Eoff was ordered to turn himself in to the United States Bureau of Prisons. The indictment alleged that Eoff and three others Mark Ciccarello, Troy Palmer and William Mabry conspired to purchase and import from China chemicals that they used to treat innocuous plant matter to make "Spice," a synthetic cannabinoid drug, and they conspired to launder money illegally obtained through the drug's manufacturing and distribution. Mabry was sentenced in May to serve two years in federal prison, pay $80,000 in restitution and pay a $100 special assessment. Palmer is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 25, and Ciccarello's sentencing is set for Sept. 8.
The prosecutions result from a joint investigation of the Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force, a collaboration of local, state and federal agencies.
