Man sentenced to 3 years in prison for illegal marijuana operation in San Isabel National Forest

A federal judge sentenced a 25-year-old man a week to three years in federal prison for growing and likely to sell huge amounts of marijuana, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday.

Margarito Yepez-Sanchez, a Mexican living in the USA illegally, also received three years of supervised release for conspiracy to manufacture and possess with intent to distribute 100 or more marijuana plants.

Yepes-Sanchez was first charged in September 2017, after federal agents found an illegal marijuana grow in San Isabel National Forest, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. Agents found at least 120 pounds of marijuana on 12 acres of federal land and approximately 13,800 marijuana plants.
