5 Charged in North Texas Drug Crimes Case

Five men who prosecutors have accused of belonging to a North Texas drug ring were arrested last month.

Cesar Ismael Hernandez, 40; Jose Adrian Escareno, Jr., 23; Cesar Hernandez, Jr., 20; Jesus Ernesto Hernandez, 38; and Steven Boris Wallace, 38, are accused of possessing a number of narcotics with a suspected intent to sell.

These men stand accused of intent to distribute over 100 kg or more of marijuana, 500 g or more of methamphetamine, and 500 g or more of cocaine. Conviction on the methamphetamine charges alone could result in 10 years incarceration and a $10 million fine, while the marijuana and cocaine charges could result in 5 to 40 years in prison and a $5 million penalty.

The penalties for drug possession and intent to distribute are severe in the state of Texas, and anyone accused of drug-related crimes needs to do everything they can to fight these charges.
