Duane (DAK) Kees, United States Attorney for the Western District of Arkansas, announced that Jorge Abraham Sandoval, age 33, was sentenced today to 120 months in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release for one count of Distribution of more than 50 grams of Methamphetamine.

Sandoval was indicted by a federal grand jury in December 2018, and he entered a guilty plea in March 2019.

This case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations and the Drug Enforcement Administration. Assistant United States Attorney Brandon Carter prosecuted the case for the United States.
