Santa Fe man gets prison time in cocaine case

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – A Santa Fe man has been sentenced to 6 ½ years in federal prison for his role in a crack cocaine trafficking conspiracy.

Federal prosecutor say 24-year-old Michael Jaramillo also was sentenced Wednesday to four years of supervised release after he serves his prison term.

Jaramillo was among five men indicted in April 2013 on narcotics and firearms charges as the result of a federal investigation.

Authorities say Jaramillo was part of an organization that manufactured and distributed crack cocaine in Bernalillo and Santa Fe counties between March 2012 and April 2013.

Jaramillo entered a guilty plea in the case four months ago.

Two of the other defendants also pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing while the other two have pleaded not guilty and are awaiting trial. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
