WICHITA — A resident of Mexico who had previously been convicted of two drug trafficking crimes was sentenced Monday to nearly six years in prison, to be followed by deportation, authorities said.
Miguel Aragon-Concha, 30, of Durango, Mexico, also received a 16-month sentence for violating the terms of his supervised release in a Texas federal case. That sentence will run at the same time as his other sentence.
Aragon-Concha pleaded guilty in May to re-entering the United States illegally after having been deported.
The 70-month sentence was the result of Aragon-Concha's criminal history, authorities said, which included a 1998 sale of cocaine conviction in Amarillo, Texas, and a 2000 possession of marijuana with intent to distribute conviction in federal court in El Paso.
Aragon-Concha was deported from the United States in 2007 but returned in 2009 and was found in the Sedgwick County Jail last January.
