DALLAS —Julio Cesar Torres, 52, of Greenville, Texas was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Sam A. Lindsay to 84 months in federal prison, following his guilty plea in September 2017 to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and to distribute a schedule II controlled substance, announced U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox of the Northern District of Texas.

According to the plea agreement factual resume filed in the case, on March 17, 2017, Torres made arrangements to sell multiple kilograms of cocaine for $26,500 per kilogram. Torres obtained the cocaine from codefendants Miguel Angel Almazan-Loya and Jose Juan Ortiz-Pacheco at an apartment complex on Ferguson Road in Dallas.

Officers subsequently arrived with a search warrant and searched the apartment. The search revealed approximately three kilograms of cocaine wrapped in plastic wrap and black colored tape contained within a yellow bag further contained within a cardboard box located in the residence.

The Drug Enforcement Administration investigated the case with assistance from the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department and the City of Lewisville Police Department.  Assistant U.S. Attorney George Leal was in charge of the prosecution.
