The man who was behind the wheel when police discovered over 14 grams of methamphetamine has been sentenced in federal court.

Vincent Reyes would be paid with either money or methamphetamine each time he gave his friend and co-defendant Chan a ride, but the defense made it clear that Reyes was not employed by Chan nor was he a key player in the drug distribution scheme.

District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood noted that Reyes’ criminal history was reflective of a drug user and that he has no other criminal history since his 20s. She applauded him for his efforts in rehabilitation and his clean record while on pre-trial release.

Reyes told the Chief Judge that he wants as much help as he can get to overcome his drug addictions and be a positive role model to his family.

With this in mind, the Chief Judge ordered that he participate in a residential drug abuse program while he serves his time at an incarceration facility in Oregon.

Gatewood sentenced Reyes to 30 months with credit for time served. He will be placed on a 3-year supervised release term following his imprisonment.
