[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

A Honolulu man has been found guilty in a methamphetamine drug case and will spend at least 10 years in prison.

A federal jury on Wednesday found 56-year-old Mario Cesar Torres of Waipahu guilty of distributing methamphetamine and conspiracy.

U.S. Department of Justice prosecutors say Torres faces a minimum mandatory sentence of 10 years and could be sentenced to life in prison. He is scheduled to be sentenced June 3.

Prosecutors say Torres delivered about a pound of methamphetamine on two occasions, and was the driver on a third transaction in which a passenger delivered about one pound of methamphetamine.

The drug transactions occurred between August 2010 and January 2011.
