Guam - For years he was an asset to the community working in the Peace Corps, giving back to underprivileged children, and working as a teacher at George Washington High School before starting his own business.

But today, Mark Kessenich was sentenced to 37 months behind bars with three years supervised release for bringing 214 grams of methamphetamine hydrochloride into Guam via his business, Western Pacific Caseworks.

As we've been reporting, Kessenich pleaded guilty to wiring money to California in exchange for drugs concealed in construction materials.

During his sentencing today, Kessenich showed remorse and asked for a lesser sentence for a chance to keep his business alive while he was behind bars, but the court denied his request.
