Luis Perez Diaz, five years and six months in prison and four years supervised release for conspiracy to distribute more than 500 grams of cocaine.

Jose Leon Hernandez, four years and nine months in prison and four years supervised release for conspiracy to distribute more than 500 grams of cocaine. The court recommended he serve his sentence in a facility close to Ashland.
