GARDNERVILLE, Nev. (AP) - A 32-year-old Gardnerville man convicted of drug trafficking has been sentenced to up to 25 years in prison after a judge found him to be a habitual criminal.

Douglas County District Judge Tod Young told David Gomez Tuesday he must serve at least nine years before he’s eligible for parole.

Gomez pleaded guilty earlier to trafficking and being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm. He’s been imprisoned prison twice before on drug and other charges.

The (Gardnerville) Record-Courier reports (https://tinyurl.com/nfj2sr8) Gomez told Young he’s been a drug addict, dealer and “thug” but he’s spent the last seven months in isolation with a Bible and believes he’s on the road to recovery.

The judge told Gomez he can’t rely on God to change him, he has to do that himself.
