Man sentenced to 15 years in prison for selling meth to Lincoln

LINCOLN, Neb. (Nebraska) – A man was sentenced Friday to 15 years in prison for selling methamphetamines in Lincoln.

The US attorney’s office said 32-year-old Socorro Alejandres Alvarez of Mexico will serve ten years on probation following his prison sentence.

There is no probation in the federal system.

In 2020, Alvarez used an illegal cell phone while imprisoned at the Great Plains Correctional Facility in Hinton, Oklahoma to arrange a package of meth to be delivered to Nebraska from Los Angeles, California.

The package was intercepted by law enforcement, according to the prosecutor’s office. The package contained 420 grams of actual methamphetamine.

Alvarez made multiple expeditions while in prison. Shipments were sent to Shannon Rojas, Shane Lawrence and Jeremiah Schnoor.

Rojas was sentenced to nearly six years on May 27, 2022, and Lawrence was sentenced to over 16 years on February 11, 2022.

Schnoor pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute more than 500 grams of meth. He is to be sentenced on May 18, 2023.
