Mexican National Pleads Guilty to Drug and Gun Charges

NOV 24 (BOISE, Idaho) – Cesar Solorio-Solorio, 40, a Mexican national living in Shoshone, Idaho, pleaded guilty today in United States District Court to distribution of methamphetamine and unlawful possession of a firearm. 

According to court documents, on March 7, 2014, Solorio-Solorio sold one ounce of methamphetamine to a person assisting law enforcement.  A warrant was issued for his arrest.  On May 28, 2014, when law enforcement agents arrested Solorio-Solorio, they found a .22 revolver in his pocket.  Agents also located methamphetamine inside his vehicle.  Solorio-Solorio is prohibited from possessing firearms because he was previously convicted of a felony crime for possessing a controlled substance in 2004. 

The charge of distribution of methamphetamine is punishable by up to 20years in prison, a maximum fine of $1 million, and at least three years of supervised release. The charge of unlawful possession of a firearm is punishable by up to 10 years in prison, a maximum fine of $250,000, and up to three years of supervised release.

Solorio-Solorio is set for sentencing on February 13, 2015, before U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge at the federal courthouse in Boise.

The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, U.S Marshals Service, Boise Police Department, and the Idaho State Police.
