LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A Lincoln man will spend over a decade in prison for his role in helping sell meth across the city, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Esequiel Guerrero, 36, was sentenced Tuesday to 15 years in prison for conspiracy to distribute 500 grams of separate mixtures containing meth, cocaine and marijuana.

A Lincoln narcotics task force learned that Guerrero had been involved in the sale of at least 11 pounds of a mixture containing meth between August 2020 and February 2021.

Guerrero had been used as a translator in negotiations between sources in Texas and Mexico and sellers in Lincoln, the attorney’s office said.

In February 2021, authorities seized at least 2 ounces of meth, which was meant to be given to Guerrero and one of his accomplices.

Guerrero will serve a five-year term of supervised release after his prison sentence.

There is no parole in the federal system.
