Madison man sentenced to 8 yrs for major cocaine sales

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A Madison man has been sentenced to eight years in a federal prison, for selling over a $1 million of cocaine.

40-year-old Rodolfo Jaurez-Gonzalez pleaded guilty in January to a charge of distributing over 500 grams of cocaine– but the U.S. Justice Department said the total amount was much higher than that.

One customer reportedly bought 2-to-3 kilograms every 6-to-8 weeks for at least two years – and each kilo was said to be worth $40-thousand.

Jaurez-Gonzalez was arrested last July.

Drug agents said he had almost a $500,000 in his home in two safety deposit boxes. 

All the money was seized.
