Jesus C. Madrigal, 25, agreed to plead guilty in the summer to possessing a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking offense, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
A federal judge sentenced Madrigal Tuesday. Madrigal admitted to firing a gun at “would-be” robbers in an attempt to protect narcotics that he had at his home, according to court documents.
