Javier Convicted for Methamphetamine Trafficking
By Wendy Osher
A Kahului man was convicted today for methamphetamine trafficking for incidents between 2004 and 2009 on Maui, court officials said.
Jeffrey Javier, 58, was one of two men found guilty of conspiring to distribute 50 grams or more of meth on the island over the five year period, according to the US Department of Justice.
Also convicted in the case was 45-year-old Reynaldo Agudo of Keaʻau, Hawaiʻi.
Javier was also convicted of attempting to possess 80 grams of methamphetamine with intent to distribute on June 5, 2007, according to a press release issued today by the Justice Department.
The guilty verdict was returned today after a five-day trial in the US District Court in Honolulu.
According to court records, the methamphetamine was sent from California, via express mail services, to Maui during 2006 and 2007. “Evidence also established that Javier and another individual financed the shipment of 80 grams of pure methamphetamine which was intercepted at Honolulu Airport on June 5, 2007 by the Drug Enforcement Administration,” the press release stated.
Both men face up to life in prison, with a mandatory minimum of 10 years in jail on each charge when they are sentenced in August.
