POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) -- A Rexburg man faces 40 years in prison after a judge found him guilty of six counts of distributing methamphetamine and two felony firearms charges during a two-day trial this week.
Noe Munguia-Diaz was convicted in U.S. District Court in Pocatello on Tuesday.
The judgment was delivered by a federal judge after Munguia-Diaz waived his right to a jury trial.
Prosecutors told Judge Terry J. Hatter, Jr., during the trial Munguia-Diaz sold methamphetamine to other individuals on six occasions between March 2011 and October 2012.
They say the defendant acknowledged to Rexburg Police Department officers that he had methamphetamine in his house and that a firearm in the car he was driving belonged to him.
He'll have to forfeit the two firearms he unlawfully possessed
Sentencing is slated for December.
