A Customs officer facing charges in federal court for conspiracy and distribution of crystal methamphetamine pleaded guilty yesterday as part of a plea deal.
Peter M. Iguel, 31, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine-an offense that carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, $1 million maximum fine, $100 court assessment fee, and at least three years of supervised release.
U.S. District Court for the NMI Chief Judge Ramona V. Manglona unsealed the plea agreement yesterday.
Attorney Robert T. Torres is counsel for Iguel. Assistant U.S. attorney Ross Naughton represents the U.S. government.
According to the indictment, the Customs officer distributed “ice” on Dec. 13, 2011 and Jan. 10, 2012, allegedly worth $420.
