Debbie Alvarez With 7 Pounds of Meth Gets 24 Months After 3 Attempts At Rehab San Diego Bound

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 19 – Debbie Alvarez is 24 years old. On June 19 she was up for sentencing for trafficking 7 pounds of meth. It would have carried a 10 year minimum sentence, but for the safety valve.

   U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge P. Kevin Castel held the proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

  Alvarez said being in the MCC had taught her a lesson. Her lawyer asked that whatever sentence she got be served near San Diego, where she is from. 

 Judge Castel recounted that she'd been addicted to meth since age 16, that her father had tried to get her into treatment.

He sentenced her to 24 months, with four years of supervised release.

The case is US v. Alvarez, 19-cr-831 (Castel).
