LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - New developments concerning some suspects in the Levelland drug trafficking raid.
According to court documents, Bobby Duwayne Froman of Levelland waived his right to a detention hearing. Court documents say Froman was the leader of a methamphetamine drug ring. The judge ordered him to be locked up pending his trial date.
But for for Froman's wife, Sharon Froman, it's a different story. The judge allowed her to post a 10 percent cash bond of $15,000. So after she paid $1,500 she was let out of jail pending her trail.
Also arrested in that same drug bust was Hockley County Sheriff's Deputy Gordon Bohannon, who has since been fired. When he was arrested last week his attorney asked that the indictment be dropped as unconstitutionally vague. The judge in a one sentence opinion denied that motion.
Still on the subject of the Levelland drug bust, charges against one defendant have been dropped. Court records offer no explanation as to why, but the charges against Tisha Janell Sparks are dismissed.
