Three men from Ocala sentenced to prison for several federal drug charges

OCALA, Fla. (WCJB) -- Three Ocala men were sentenced to more than thirty years combined behind bars after being found guilty of several drug charges last Friday.

Juan Pablo Malagon- Alvarez was sentenced to 11 years and four months in federal prison for conspiracy to possess and distribute heroin among other drug-related charges.

Jose Servin and Aurelio Gomez were also found guilty for their roles in the crime and sentenced to ten years each.

Officials say they distributed heroin on a weekly or bi-monthly basis to at least two local drug dealers.

These drug deals typically happened on horse farms in the Ocala area.
