Guilty plea expected in Levelland meth ring trial

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Two former Levelland Sheriff's Deputies and all of their current co-defendants plan to admit guilt and take a plea bargain.

Former Hockley County Chief Deputy Gordon Bohannon, and Deputy Jesse Quintanilla were arrested on July 10th, 2009 along with other defendants. They were accused of helping Bobby Froman run a methamphetamine drug ring.

Prosecutors filed a document last week saying in part, "...each of the defendants in this case has declared his or her intent to plead guilty and a date has been scheduled for their guilty plea."

The trial that was scheduled for November 2nd has been vacated.

According to the Hockley County Sheriff's Office, Quintanilla resigned voluntarily after Sheriff David Kinny was removed as Sheriff in August. Kinney was removed by a judge at the request of the Hockley County Attorney's Office. Kinny was accused of incompetence and filing two fraudulent documents. The judge then appointed Kevin Davis as the Hockley County Sheriff.
