The former boyfriend of convicted killer Sarah Johnson has been sentenced to ten years in prison on drug charges. Bruno Santos was sentenced Monday in Blaine County District Court to 10 years in prison for delivery of cocaine in April 2010. According to the Idaho mountain express Santos was arrested with his cousin 27 year old Jose Benitez-Diaz, from Ogden, Utah during an undercover sting operation.

The Judge is allowing Santos to serve the two prison terms concurrently, with credit for 435 days already served in the Blaine County jail. The federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency has accused both men of being in the United States illegally. Upon release from prison, Santos faces likely deportation from the United States. He has previously been deported three other times. Santos was dating the then 16 yar old Johnson at the time of her parents murders in 2005 in Bellevue. Santos will not be eligible for parole until 2018.
