DISTRICT Court for the NMI Chief Judge Ramona V. Manglona has sentenced Joanne Marie Deleon Guerrero Castro to 87 months in prison for her involvement in a methamphetamine production scheme.

Upon release from prison, Castro will  submit to a three-year supervised release and comply with other court-ordered conditions.

At the sentencing hearing on Tuesday, Castro was represented by attorney Robert T. Torres who requested psychiatric and medical care for the defendant, which Judge Manglona granted.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Garth Backe appeared for the federal government.

Castro pleaded guilty to possession of illegal chemicals used for making methamphetamine on June 20, 2019.

She also pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess prescription nasal decongestant that contained the ingredient pseudoephedrine, a chemical commonly used to make methamphetamine or “ice.”

Castro is one of the individuals flagged by a pharmacy and reported to the Drug Enforcement Agency for their “curious pattern” of buying cold medicine that contained pseudoephedrine.
