A convicted drug dealer has avoided serious jail time by providing substantial assistance to the government.
In fact, Enrique Guerrero provided so much assistance to the Attorney General’s Office involving confidential criminal cases that the government agreed, through a plea deal, to not impose any additional jail time.
Guerrero was charged in two drug cases — one in 2017 and the other in 2018 — and he was looking at doing up to 10 years behind bars.
But because the assistance he provided was great, his deal with the government meant a sentence of 75 days incarceration, which is time he has already served.
He signed a deal with the government pleading guilty to certain charges contained in two separate cases.
Today, he pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a scheduled two controlled substance with the intent to deliver as a first-degree felony for a 2018 drug case.
He also pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a scheduled one controlled substance with intent to deliver as a first-degree felony.
In doing so, the remaining charges in the case were dropped to include the special allegation of major drug crime committed while on pre-trial release.
He has been placed on five years of supervised release.
