The man who conspired with a U.S. Postal worker to sell more than four pounds of cocaine will spend up to 10 years in prison.

Lancaster County Judge Merrill Spahn sentenced Estanislao Sanchez-Diaz, 50, of the Dominican Republic, on Monday to 4-3/4 to 10 years in prison for conspiring with Carlos Medina, 57, of Lititz, to smuggle cocaine into the county.

Sanchez-Diaz pleaded guilty Feb. 29 to charges of possession with intent to deliver and three related offenses, the same charges as Media. Medina, who worked for the postal service for 34 years, was sentenced 4 ½ to 10 years in prison May 3.


“He admitted to making a mistake,” Sanchez-Diaz’s lawyer Steven Carroll said. “He’s 50 years old and he made one wrong decision, and he owned up to it.”

Carroll said Sanchez-Diaz was not deeply involved with the drug operation and said Spahn was fair in how he handled the case.
