Utah Man Sentenced in Idaho for Drug Crimes
A Salt Lake City man was recently sentenced in Idaho to more than 19 years in federal prison for drug trafficking.
Francis R. Casildo, 36, was sentenced to 235 months in federal prison for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance, U.S. Attorney Bart M. Davis said in a news release on Thursday.
After his prison term, Casildo will have five years of supervised release.
Davis said that according to court records, on or about March 12 and March 26, 2018, Casildo traveled to Pocatello and distributed methamphetamine. He also facilitated a third distribution of methamphetamine the following month, on April 2.
“As a result,” according to the news release, “Casildo caused 206.35 grams of pure methamphetamine to be distributed in Idaho. After a three-day trial earlier this year, Casildo was found guilty on all charged counts.”
