Heroin Traffickers Sentenced
FORT WORTH, Texas - Two individuals, both in the U.S. illegally, have been sentenced for their roles in a heroin distribution conspiracy, announced U.S. Attorney John Parker of the Northern District of Texas.
Yesterday, Ana Maria Guerra-Sanchez, 23, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Reed C. O’Connor to 95 months in federal prison. Last month, co-conspirator Florencio Galvan-Musico, also 23, was sentenced to 90 months in federal prison. Both pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess heroin with the intent to distribute. After serving their sentence, both will be referred to U.S. Immigration officials for deportation proceedings.
According to documents filed in the case, for approximately the past two years, Guerra-Sanchez and Galvan-Musico worked together, and with others, to distribute heroin to various customers in the Dallas - Fort Worth, Texas, area. Guerra-Sanchez received heroin from Galvan-Musico that she distributed to others, and she returned the drug proceeds to Galvan-Musico. Together, both possessed more than 100 grams of heroin with the intent to distribute it.
The Drug Enforcement Administration in Fort Worth investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Shawn Smith was in charge of the prosecution.
