Another Rochester Man Sentenced For 2019 Drug Bust
St. Paul, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Rochester man has been sentenced to 11 years in federal prison for a drug trafficking conviction stemming from a 2019 drug bust in Rochester.
34-year-old Jason Edward Hoffman pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in August of last year. A news release from the Acting US Attorney for Minnesota says Hoffman served as a sub-distributor and provided distribution logistics for methamphetamine that was supplied to him by another Rochester man, John Willis Netherton.
He was previously sentenced to 21 years in prison. Andrew Berndt of Rochester was given a 102-month prison term, while Miguel Zamora is serving a 120-year sentence. Four other co-conspirators have pleaded guilty but have yet to be sentenced.
The 2019 drug bust in Rochester led to the seizure of 13 pounds of methamphetamine, $11,000 in cash, a quantity of counterfeit $100 bills, and a handgun.
