HONOLULU (AP) - A federal court jury found a Kapolei man guilty of methamphetamine trafficking.

The U.S. Attorney's office in Hawaii said Ernesto Hernandez was convicted Friday.

He faces up to life in prison, with a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years, when he's sentenced April 28.

Prosecutors said Hernandez agreed with others to distribute meth that was sent from California via FedEx.

Prosecutors say he arranged the shipment of 213 grams of meth. FedEx security intercepted the package at the Honolulu International Airport.

Defense attorney Thomas Otake declined to comment on the verdict.
