An Oahu man is expected to spend at least 30 years in prison after being found guilty today by a federal jury of two counts of intentionally distributing methamphetamine.
Ashford Kaipo Spencer, 57, was found guilty of distrtibuting “ounce qualities” of methamphetamine to a confidential source in April 2009 and again in June 2009 in the area of Waimanalo Shopping Center.
Because Spencer has two prior state felony convictions involving crimes of violence, he faces a potential prison sentence of 360 months to life without parole, U.S. Attorney Florence Nakakuni said.
Upon conviction, Spencer was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Office.
