Meth Distribution Sentencing

Posted: Updated:
A Wichita Falls man will spend 14 years in Federal Prison for his role in a large meth distribution conspiracy.

Louis Griego Junior, also known as “Big Lou,” was sentenced on Monday.  He admitted he distributed meth to customers in the Wichita Falls area in February 2013.  Griego entered his guilty plea in July 2013 to an indictment charging Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute and Distribute Methamphetamine.

A total of seven defendants have pleaded guilty in the case.  In August 2013, Anthony Rueben Johnson, 28, was sentenced to 40 years in federal prison.  Rachel Dawn Billen, 20, was sentenced to 36 months, and Christina Gail Thompson, 32, was sentenced to 42 months in federal prison.  All of them pleaded guilty earlier in 2013.

Three other defendants have been charged in the case and have pleaded guilty.  Janis Hernandez, James Allan Holley, and Darren Scott Murphy are waiting for their sentencing trials, which are scheduled during the next few months.
