Lizama sentenced to 96 months in prison


United States Attorney for the Districts of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands Alicia A.G. Limtiaco announced last March 7 that defendant Sean Anthony Lizama was sentenced by Chief Judge, District Court of Guam Frances Tydingco-Gatewood.

Lizama was sentenced to serve 96 months incarceration followed by three years of supervised release, with credit for time served.

Lizama pled guilty on Jan. 15, 2015, to attempted possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, in violation of Title 21 U.S.C. Section 846(a)(1) and (b)(1)(C). Lizama attempted to receive 214.9 grams of methamphetamine hydrochloride on Oct. 16, 2013. The Drug Enforcement Administration Forensic Laboratory determined that the methamphetamine had a purity level of 100 percent.

The investigation was conducted by U.S. Postal Inspectors and Special Agents from the Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations.

Limtiaco notes that this prosecution is part of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Project Safe Neighborhood (PSN) Initiative, a nationwide commitment to aggressively prosecute defendants who illegally possess firearms, engage in violent crimes, drug distribution and gang involvement. The case was handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Rosetta San Nicolas.
