Lehigh Acres man sentenced to more than six years in federal prison for selling drugs 1

A Lehigh Acres man has been sentenced to more than six years in federal prison on multiple drug charges.

U.S. District Judge Sheri Polster Chappell sentenced Francis Medina, 42, to 41 months in prison for possessing with the intent to distribute and distributing cocaine and methamphetamine. He plead guilty Aug. 5.

According to court documents, in November 2019 Medina sold cocaine and methamphetamine to an undercover law enforcement officer. When authorities later searched Medina’s home they discovered a variety of drugs and a loaded gun in his bedroom.    

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Fort Myers Police Department.
