Two men await sentencing after crystal meth conviction

Two men will be sentenced in early September on charges involving 7.1 kilos of crystal meth he brought to Diamondhead in January.

Billy Pineda-Luna faces up to 10 years to life in prison and a maximum fine of $10 million at his sentencing in U.S. District Court in Gulfport on Sept. 4. The other defendant, Roberto Nunez-Dilone, is scheduled for sentencing the next day.

The complaint in the case says they sold one kilogram of the drug to a police informant in Diamondhead in January. The men allegedly then drove to their hotel room in Slidell, La., to retrieve another six pounds.

They were pulled over and arrested when they returned to Diamondhead.
