Best Sentence In Largest Federal Methamphetamine Case.
A. C. drove a boat from Ensenada, Mexico to Oceanside that was laden with almost 500 lbs of methamphetamine. Agents described the seizure as the largest in United States history on a boat. Defendant was facing a life sentence. Eventually, the government recommended 17 years in custody. On January 12, 2014 Russell Babcock appeared for sentencing in the United State District Court, Southern District of California. The judge sentence defendant to the minimum required by law, ten years imprisonment.
A.C. will be free in a little over six years and able to re-unite with his family. At the Law Offices of Russell Babcock we believe that a person's mistake does not define them and that we individuals who have lived a law abiding life deserve a second chance. Congratulations to A.C. and family for the truly spectacular result in this case.
