11-year sentence for drug trafficking
The Justice Department said 40-year-old Ruben Camacho-Contreras, a Mexican citizen, was the second in command of a prolific drug trafficking organization. He was arrested in May 2011 and sentenced Friday in Seattle for conspiracy to distribute cocaine.
Chief U.S. District Judge Marsha J. Pechman said Camacho-Contreras likely would be deported after his prison term.
Federal prosecutors say the drug organization cocaine and methamphetamine from California into Washington and across the border into Canada. It also distributed marijuana and ecstasy from Canada into Western Washington and to other U.S. locations.
