A 32-year-old Tyler, Texas man has been sentenced to federal prison for drug trafficking violations in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales today.

Sipriano Relles pleaded guilty on Sep. 4, 2012, to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and was sentenced to 140 months in federal prison today by U.S. District Judge Michael H. Schneider. The court also imposed a $2,000 forfeiture judgment against Relles.

According to information presented in court, on Feb. 20, 2012, Relles was found in possession of approximately 66.9 grams of actual methamphetamine, which he intended to deliver to others in and around the Eastern District of Texas. A federal grand jury returned an indictment on Apr. 11, 2012, charging Relles with federal violations.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Tyler Police Department and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Bill Baldwin.
