24-year-old Juan Luis Cantu aka “Flaco,” of La Joya, Texas, was sentenced Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden to 74 months in federal prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release, for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance.
Cantu was also ordered to pay a $3,000 fine.
On February 20, Cantu pled guilty to conspiring to possess with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of cocaine and 100 kilograms or more of marijuana.
During its investigation into Cantu, the DEA learned from a cooperating source that Cantu was a source of supply for cocaine and marijuana on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Cantu was identified by multiple sources, and said to be instrumental in introducing individuals to each other for the purposes of assisting in the distribution of at least 500 grams of cocaine and 100 grams of marijuana.
