An Oklahoma City man was sentenced Thursday to 13 years in federal prison, stemming from charges filed after police uncovered multiple handguns and large amounts of cash and marijuana at his home.

Omero Cordova, 32, was indicted and charged with six counts: distribution of less than 50 kilograms of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of firearms in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime, maintaining a drug-involved premises, falsifying a material fact, and money laundering.

A jury trial was held in September 2013 and after less than three hours of deliberation, Cordova was found guilty on all six counts.

The decision was handed down by U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton, who also sentenced Cordova to three years of supervised release following the completion of his sentence. Cordova was immediately taken into custody to begin serving his sentence.
