Federal jury convicts 2 Hawaii men on meth charges

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Two Hawaii men are facing up to life in prison after a federal jury convicted them of conspiring to distribute 50 grams or more methamphetamine on Maui.

Jeffrey Javier of Kahului, Maui and Reynaldo Agudo of Keaau, Hawaii County were found guilty after a five day trial at U.S. District Court in Honolulu.

Prosecutors say the men agreed to distribute methamphetamine sent from California to Maui via express mail in 2006 and 2007.

The U.S. Attorney's office said Friday Javier and another person financed the shipment of 80 grams of pure methamphetamine the Drug Enforcement Administration intercepted at Honolulu's airport in 2007.

Judge Leslie Kobayashi is scheduled to sentence the men in August.

They both face up to life in prison and a mandatory minimum sentence of ten years.
