Reality check, wow! I bet dude wasn't expecting such a harsh punishment or even getting caught. Federal prison, dang, 23 years old? Double dang.Crime doesn't pay but i'm sure taxpayers will.

Somebody, somewhere is angry right now after taking a $40k-$80k top-line loss to their business. Serves them right.

I think there's a new push of smack coming in. I have friends up in Eureka and while its always been an issue up there, its really bad now.
I know a lot came in to the US during the 90's and use was way up.
Hopefully we're not seeing the tip of the iceberg. Keep an eye oiut for more stories like this

Interesting to look at the numbers here .. 10 yrs in prison, probably 40K +/year. 18 month federal investigation - there goes another 200K minimum. Prosecutors, county jail, public defender all need their cut. Average American family makes 50K a year. Gama gets 10 years of servitude. The tax paying public collectively gets double that. At least we get to go home at night.
