For Selling 48 Pounds of Meth To A Cooperator Daniel Martinez Pleads to 151 Months Through Safety Valve

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 3 –  Daniel Martinez pled guilty on January 16 to selling 30 pounds of meth, then another 18 pounds of meth, for distribution in Manhattan.

U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Analisa Torres read out the US Attorney's plea agreement with Martinez, for 135 to 168 months of imprisonment.   

Martinez is, she said, eligible for the "Safety Value" such that otherwise applicable mandatory minimum sentencing does not apply.  

His selling took place from Los Angeles, where he was on probation. The sales were to "CW-1," described in the docket as "previously indicted in this District for distribution of narcotics. CW-1 has agreed to cooperate with the Government's investigation in the hopes of receiving leniency at sentencing... In order about June 2019, CW-1 submitted urinalysis to pretrail services that tested positive for methamphetamine, which was a violation of the terms of CW-1's conditions of release."  

But there it was left.

Martinez' sentencing will be May 19 at 2 pm. The case is US v. Martinez, 19-cr-728 (Torres).
