A Mexico City man will spend 14-years in prison, after pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, 

Federal Court Judge, James Gritzner, also sentenced 39-year old Jaime Castillo Gomez to a 5-year term of supervised release, after Castillo Gomez is released from prison.   

Federal investigators say Castillo Gomez conspired with several others to distribute at least 1.5 kilograms of meth in Iowa's Southern District, which prosecuted the case against Castillo Gomez.

The United States Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa, Kevin E. VanderSchel, said the investigation of the Castillo Gomez conspiracy went on for more than a year in the Omaha-Council Bluffs area. The case was investigated by the FBI's Greater Omaha Safe Streets Task Force and the Southwest Iowa Narcotics Enforcement Task Force.
