Guam – Robert Lujan Saturnio took a deal with the government and could spend up to life in prison for his role in the distribution of methamphetamine on island.

The plea agreement states that if Saturnio was to go to trial, the government would be able to prove that he was a key player in the attempt to smuggle four packages containing methamphetamine into the island through the US postal system.

In total 54.5 grams of ice was seized in the drug smuggling conspiracy. Court documents state that Saturnio admitted that he was mailed the drugs from an individual identified as Chris Borja and that the drugs were to be delivered to Benjamin Saturnio Jr.

The packages were mailed between August 2014 and October 2014.

By pleading guilty to one count of conspiring to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine, Saturnio is looking at a minimum of 10 years incarceration or even life behind bars.
