A 64-year-old Scottsbluff man caught driving on a suspended license and subsequently found to have dealer amounts of meth and fentanyl pills has been sentenced.

On Friday last week, Scotts Bluff County District Court Judge Leo Dobrovolny gave Jose Rosado prison terms of not less than 18 months, nor more than 60 months, on separate counts of distribution of methamphetamine and fentanyl, plus zero up to 24 months for no drug tax stamp.

The sentences will be served concurrently, with 120 days credit for time already served.

Rosado entered a plea agreement in September, which reduced a more serious meth distribution charge that carried a mandatory minimum of five years, and he agreed to forfeit the vehicle he was driving when arrested.
