On Sept. 13, it was reported that a man and a woman pleaded guilty to drug-related charges in a California court. According to the report, the man, age 40, and the woman, age 43, were accused of being involved in a drug distribution ring that was located in Vallejo.
The authorities stated that the DEA uncovered the network. It was believed that, in addition to the group working in Vallejo, other individuals would transport the drugs to outside California. Agents with the DEA ultimately took 25 people into custody in a number of California cities and in other states in 2005. They stated that they seized four pounds of crack cocaine, two pounds of heroin, 45,000 MDMA pills and physical property, including a luxury vehicle, 230 acres and cash.
Ultimately, both individuals pleaded guilty to charges of drug trafficking of MDMA, heroin, crack cocaine and marijuana, among other drugs. Their sentencing hearing was scheduled to take place on Dec. 11. The man potentially faces a maximum of four years in prison and a $250,000 fine while the woman faces a jail sentence of up to 20 years and a $1 million fine. At the time the report was released, 10 other individuals have been indicted on charges related to the drug distribution ring.
